Wayne Library Alliance conducting online survey
REGION — From August 1 to August 22 the Wayne Library Alliance will conduct an online survey to find out how its patrons use the library’s computers and Internet connection and how this service has made a positive impact on their lives. This information will help the library improve its technology services and communicate the value of providing free access to computers and the Internet within the community. The impact survey is anonymous, available in English and Spanish, and takes 10 to 15 minutes to complete.
The impact survey is the result of a successful research initiative from the University of Washington with support from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. In 2009, the University of Washington Information School conducted Opportunity for All: How the American Public Benefits from Internet Access at U.S. Libraries, which was the first large-scale investigation of the ways U.S. library patrons use computers and the Internet at public libraries, why they use it, and how it impacts their lives.
The impact survey is coordinated by the University of Washington Information School. For more information, visit impactsurvey.org.
You can support the library by accessing the web survey from the library computers or from the library website www.waynelibraries.org.
