*Good afternoon!*

*Subject: Responses needed for public library Internet survey*

 

Last call: More responses are needed to ensure national and state-level 
analyses from the 2008-2009 Public Library Funding & Technology Study.

 

Information from last year's survey was used in Congressional testimony 
(http://tinyurl.com/5jhnq3) and in media outreach around the country 
(http://tinyurl.com/5dxhz8) in September. Many state libraries also use 
these data for peer comparison, budget requests, advocacy and testimony 
before legislative bodies. More information on this and previous studies 
dating back to 1994 is available at http://www.ala.org/plinternetfunding 
<https://owa.ala.org/exchweb/bin/redir.asp?URL=http://www.ala.org/plinternetfunding>. 
Additional survey findings are available at 
http://www.ii.fsu.edu/plinternet 
<https://owa.ala.org/exchweb/bin/redir.asp?URL=http://www.ii.fsu.edu/plinternet>.

The 2008-2009 Web-based survey may be accessed at 
http://www.plinternetsurvey.org. PLEASE COMPLETE THE SURVEY BY NOVEMBER 
7, 2008.

Responses by state must reach 60% for state-level analysis to be 
conducted by the research team. As of October 27, the following states 
had reached or surpassed this 60% participation level: Alabama, 
Delaware, Georgia, Hawaii, Indiana, Montana, Nevada, Tennessee, Texas 
and West Virginia.

Many thanks for participating in the survey. If you have any questions, 
or need assistance, please e-mail support at plinternetsurvey.org 
<mailto:support at plinternetsurvey.org>.

The study, which continues and expands work begun in 1994, is funded by 
the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and the ALA.

Thanks again, Larra Clark
