The U.S. Department of Agriculture announced $43 million for six Minnesota rural communications systems to upgrade service to broadband, according to the St. Paul Pioneer Press on Thursday August 5, 2010. While history has been and continues to be preserved in many parts of the state, faster access to that history now appears to be coming.

For those in Lyon, Pipestone, Rock, Lac qui Parle, Kittson, Marshall, Roseau, Cass, Crow Wing, Stevens, and Faribault Counties, what might you do with this service to increase access to your collections?

One Response to Electronic Access for Rural Minnesota

  1. This advancement in technology for Lac qui Parle County and other rural areas will open up many avenues for connecting to new visitors for the local historical societies. The first thing that comes to mind for me is to have a “virtual tour” of your exhibits and help promote the other area attractions to get folks to visit the area and stop at the museums, etc. Let’s get our creative minds thinking and I am sure we can find multiple ways to use this to our advantage!
