Longmont Library Conducting Online Survey

 

February 7, 2014 - From now to February 28, 2014, the Longmont Public Library will be conducting an online survey to find out how our 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 10-15 minutes to complete.

The Impact Survey is the result of a successful research initiative from the University of Washington with support from the Bill & 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 study was instrumental in providing evidence that access to the Internet at U.S. public libraries has a profound and measurable impact on individuals and communities.

The Impact Survey is coordinated by the University of Washington Information School. For more information about the Impact Survey, inquire at the library information desk or visit http://impactsurvey.org.

You can support the library by accessing the web survey from the library computers or from the library website www.ci.longmont.co.us/library between February 1st and February 28th.
