Created in partnership with Community Attributes Inc. as part of the Digital Inclusion Survey, our data visualization tool maps all public libraries using the FY2011 Public Library Survey data file released by the Institute of Museum and Library Services for library locations. The tool overlays Census data (demographic, economic, health, and education) from the American Community Survey (ACS) 5-year dataset (2007-2011). The map also includes selected 2013 Digital Inclusion Survey data from participating libraries, thus showing the roles that libraries play regarding digital inclusion in their communities.
Want your library's Digital Inclusion data on the map? Participate in the 2014 survey. We will be updating the map in early 2015 to reflect the new data.
We will continue to update the mapping tool over time. Should you have any questions or comments, please feel free to contact us. We welcome your feedback!
