From the post:
I can attest to the power of library data like that provided by thousands of libraries through the Digital Inclusion Survey throughout my career. From reporters calling the Public Information Office to other researchers and library students while in the Office for Research and Statistics to now with Beltway policymakers and legislators, the time librarians make to respond to national surveys puts our community “on the map” for those who might otherwise count us out of the Digital Age.
As often as you are asked to respond to a survey, we are asked to document why libraries need more funding through the federal E-rate program, to answer how many libraries offer 3D printers, and to show how libraries are helping supporting a 21st century workforce. I can’t credibly answer these questions without your help.
The Digital Inclusion Survey is open until November 22. Be the answer!
