Voter Perceptions: Getting from Awareness to Funding in 2018

PLA, the ALA Office for Library Advocacy, and OCLC partnered to revisit last decade's seminal "From Awareness to Funding" research study, to understand current voter perceptions. In this essential program for library leaders, panelists (including Sharon Streams, Director of WebJunction, an OCLC Research program) will share key findings and analysis from the new research, provide new details on library super supporters and probable supporters in context with other library trends and research, and offer preliminary recommendations for how advocates can act on these findings.

No OCLC registration is needed for this PLA session.
