Portals are a natural extension of the library.

The vision of Portals is to develop a global public utility, in communities large and small, all free and open to the public, with the mission of helping human beings take advantage of the benefits of global interconnection and human diversity.

We see our Portal_Curators like librarians.

Our Curators do more than just match people with similar interests. They help nurture an imaginative spark, creating a demand for satiating a basic human curiosity in the lives of others. Our Curators, like librarians, hold the hands of members of their community and guide them to people and experiences that open up their world.
