Global Impact Study Final Report Release: Connecting People for Development
IFLA is pleased to announce the launch of the Global Impact Study of Public Access ICTs from the Technology & Social Change Group (TASCHA) at the University of Washington Information School. The Global Impact Study was designed to address the debate of the importance of public access ICTs by generating evidence about the scale, character, and impacts of these.
Situating public access in the context of national development, Connecting people for development summarizes the key findings, discusses some disputed issues, and offers recommendations for policymakers, public access practitioners, and researchers.
You can get involved by exploring the additional resources generated by the Global Impact Study’s open research approach. All of the survey materials and data are available for public use, and full research reports and summaries on each of the in-depth studies, focused on specific questions surrounding public access, are being released over the next couple of months.
