Public Access Technology Benchmarks Coalition

May 9, 2011 at 1:38 am Leave a comment

Led by the Urban Library Council , a coalition of local library and government leaders will develop a set of benchmarks related to technology access in public libraries that will be piloted in California, Oklahoma, and Texas communities. The benchmarks will then be refined and launched for broad use by the library community in the spring of 2012. While the benchmarks are expected to dovetail with the broader framework for digitally inclusive communities established by IMLS, they will focus exclusively on meaningful, achievable public technology access in libraries.

This initiative marks the first collective effort of leaders – who represent libraries and local government officials – to establish guidelines that define quality technology services at public libraries and promote continuous improvement of those services.
