US IMPACT Public Library Study

The US IMPACT Public Library Study examines the impact public library efforts to provide free access to computers, the Internet, digital resources, and support services on the well-being of individuals, families, and communities. Researchers worked with users, libraries, communities, and public policy organizations to document impact in the areas of civic engagement, education, e-commerce, e-government, health, employment, and social inclusion. The project also identifies indicators and simple, cost-effective evaluation approaches to guide funding and policy decisions.

This project is a product of the US IMPACT Study.
