In 2020, the Census will be conducted primarily online for the first time. Like past e-government efforts, this will likely impact libraries and libraries' technology resources as staff work to assist people in participating in the Census. The 2020 Census also presents an opportunity to increase public awareness and use of Census data. To best position libraries to support our communities in the 2020 Census, we are engaging with the Census Bureau and other stakeholders to ensure that libraries are informed and represented in the policy discussions and planning process. We are advocating for a fair, accurate, and inclusive Census that recognizes the roles libraries will play in this vital civic effort. (source: ALA)
