Impacts of the Internet on Public Library Use: An Analysis of the Current Consumer Market for Library and Internet Services

In November, the Urban Libraries Council released data from a national telephone survey examining correlations between public library use and Internet use. In general, the study finds that Internet use is not discouraging people from using their public libraries, though it is clear that for some tasks, the Internet is preferred by a majority of respondents. The report also gives information correlating Internet and public library use to demographics of education, income, gender, and to a limited degree, race. The complete 59-page report is offered in .pdf format.
