FLA Survey on Digital Skills

The ability to use technology to connect, to research, even to fill out simple and vital forms is no longer optional. Yet many of our library customers do not have these basic skills ­ and they look to librarians for direction and training. This study will look at perspectives from both public and academic libraries to provide an awareness of the varied landscape of digital training skills and needs among Florida residents and clarify the state of technology training for librarians throughout Florida.

By taking part in this study, you will help to provide a more accurate picture of what is needed to make Florida¹s residents successful netizens.  The survey should take less than 20 minutes of your time. Results will be shared at the Florida Library Association¹s Annual Conference on May 6, 2011.

The survey will be available until April 4, 2011. If you have worked in a Florida Library within the past twelve months, we hope you will share your expertise by going to the following URL:

Thank you,

Paul Alford
