I am posting on behalf of OCLC

OCLC needs your help to understand the types of assistance public
libraries provide to users today. Please share your library's role in
supporting patrons with such activities as job seeking, small business
support, technology training and in providing meeting room facilities by
taking this quick six- question OCLC survey available at
http://www.oclc.org/info/ValueOfLibrariesSurvey/.

 

In 2003, OCLC produced the report Libraries: How They Stack Up
<http://www.webjunction.org/research-statistics/-/articles/content/430733>  
that provided a snapshot of the economic impact of libraries. The
report included facts and figures to compare the value of libraries as a
destination, logistics, technology and information provider. To support
public librarians in budget planning and funding requests, OCLC will
soon release a similar report as a tool to help you illustrate the value
public libraries play today, based in part on your responses to this
survey. You can sign up to receive this and other OCLC membership
reports at http://www.oclc.org/us/en/email/subscribe.htm .
