Impact Survey

Check out the changes to Impact Survey!

Since October 2013, over 800 libraries have registered for Impact Survey. Over the summer, we've worked on some major changes to our site and services:

  • Redesigned interface that makes it easier track of survey progress and increase survey responses .
  • Capability for a state or other library group to run a survey among member libraries.
  • Ability to run multiple surveys in one year.

The U.S. IMPACT Study

Access to the Internet has become a central part of American society, helping all of us in many areas of our daily lives. Over the past twenty years, libraries and community technology centers have taken on the role of public access centers for those who are unable to reach the Internet at home or work, for reasons ranging from lack of financial resources to personal preference. The U.S. Impact Study is examining the users and use of these public services to better understand the impact of free access to computers and the Internet on the individuals, families and communities served by these public and private resources.
