The MHEC and the MLS have partnered to address many of the new technologies available to libraries by procuring the L54 Library Digital Technologies contract. With the growth and expansion of “maker spaces,” where community members gather to learn and develop skills that are impractical to learn via the Internet, MHEC and the MLS selected Northeast Digital Integrators, a “new digital technologies” leader, to support the libraries in becoming a more digital community.
NEDI comes into this collaboration with 20 years of the wealth of experience providing and running maker spaces in public schools under its belt. Their consulting services will also involve providing project management support through the implementation project and providing continuous support via project management on completion of the client’s space and once it is up and running.
From maker space technologies to providing “state-of-the-art” multimedia solutions for their meeting spaces, NEDI brings decades of experience in developing AV solutions to this contract. Northeast Digital Integrators has also been the preferred vendor on the MHEC B-11 Multimedia Services and Equipment contract for the past 4 years. So by being on both contracts, it positions them well to provide a wide range of digital technology to the Library and Educational (k-12 and higher ed) customers and prospective customers.
Unlike other companies offering equipment, supplies or services that people interested in the L54 contract want, NEDI is unique in that they have professionals that have run the Maker spaces for up to 20 years and have the capacity and skillfulness to provide the technology that enables MHEC members to interact with other maker space facilities through video conferencing tools, chat tools, audio conferencing etc.
