In 1999, TASCHA (then the Center for Internet Studies) was founded to unite and mobilize a multidisciplinary network of researchers, practitioners, and policy experts to explore the design, use, and effects of information and communication technologies in communities facing social and economic challenges around the world. Since then, TASCHA researchers have worked in more than 50 countries to advance the field of information and communication technologies for development (ICT4D), and guide policy and practice in areas ranging from public access to computers and the Internet in the U.S. and social media and social change in the Middle East, to supporting Myanmar’s transition to a democratic state with an integrated market economy. The world will be watching in the coming years as TASCHA leads a global conversation on the future of libraries.
