Upcoming RIPL Webinar – Voter Perceptions of Libraries: Results and Methodologies of the 2018 From Awareness to Funding Study

Thursday, May 23, 2019 at 12:00-1:00 Mountain

What motivates people to vote in favor of library funding? OCLC posed this question a decade ago, which led to the 2008 report, From Awareness to Funding, which provided ground-breaking insights into voter support for libraries. Ten years later, OCLC and ALA partnered to conduct a follow-up study to understand what may have changed in voter attitudes and behaviors over the past decade. In this webinar, the OCLC research team will discuss the key results, suggest areas for action, and then will describe the methods used to create the survey, collect and analyze the survey data.

Presenters:Sharon Streams, WebJunction/OCLC, Janet Hawk, OCLC, and Peggy Gallagher, OCLC
