A good thing arrived in my e-mail this morning!
Public Library Funding & Technology Access Study 2010
“This year’s Study, the fourth in a series, provides you with national and state-level data and benchmarks of technology resources. Authored by the ALA Office for Research and Statistics and the Center for Library & Information Innovation, the study draws on information provided by thousands of rural, suburban, and urban libraries in every state; by state library agencies; and from interviews with library staff in select states.
The study is funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and the American Library Association. This digital edition is co-published by American Libraries magazine.
You can read “Public Library Funding & Technology Access Study 2010” in the easy-to-use Zmag web browser format, or download it as a PDF for offline reading. Just click here to get started.”
This is important ammunition folks. Let’s all arrive in these budget and funding meetings well armed.
Thank you to the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and the American Library Association.
