Put your library on Digital Inclusion map before Dec 12!

Digital Inclusion Survey LogoLast call! Add your voice now to a nationally representative study of public libraries and the roles they play in community digital inclusion. Participate in the 2014 Digital Inclusion Survey by December 12 to add your library to interactive community maps and support efforts to educate policymakers and the media about modern library services, resources and infrastructure.

Participation in the survey can also help your library identify the impacts of public computer and Internet access on your community and demonstrate library contributions to community digital inclusion efforts. The study is funded by the Institute of Museum and Library Services, and conducted by the American Library Association (ALA), the Information Policy & Access Center (iPAC) at University of Maryland, the International City/County Management Association (ICMA), and Community Attributes International (CAI).

Find your community on our new interactive map here and check out the rest of our tools and resources here. With your help we can further build on these tools and products with the 2014 survey results. To participate, go to http://digitalinclusion.umd.edu and follow the Take Survey Now button. The survey is open until December 12. (By participating you can also register to win one of three Kindles!)
