Take Part in GRRL's Online Impact Survey in April

Here’s a chance for you to tell us how library technology affects your life and to help shape the future of technology services at your library.
Great River Regional Library is conducting an online technology impact survey during April. The survey will help us to understand how patrons use the library’s technology, and that will help us to improve our technology services in ways valuable to the community.
The survey can be accessed April 1 - 30 from library computers or from griver.org, the library website.
Individuals must be 14 or older to take the survey.
It is anonymous, available in English and Spanish, and takes 10-15 minutes to complete.
It includes general questions about how patrons use the library website and services, as well as specific questions to determine how a patron is using library computers (for educational purposes, to access government services, to make social connections, etc.).
The impact survey is the result of a research initiative from the University of Washington with support from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. It is coordinated by the University of Washington Information School, which in 2009 conducted the first large-scale investigation of the ways U.S. library patrons use computers and the Internet at public libraries. That study provided evidence that access to the Internet at U.S. public libraries has a profound and measurable impact on individuals and communities.
