School Library or School?

Under E-Rate, a school library is considered to be a school and not a library. For instance, under the Children's Internet Protection Act, a school library receiving E-Rate discounts must meet the more stringent compliance requirements for schools, not libraries.

School Libraries in Networks

Some school libraries belong to one of the automated library networks (e.g., SAILS, CLAMS, or C/W Mars) . If Internet service or a telecommunications link is provided through the network, then the school library is covered by the network E-Rate application.
