In 2020, the Census will primarily be conducted online for the first time. ALA is providing information as the time approaches to help libraries prepare for increased demands on technology resources and staff to assist those taking part in the Census. Below you can find some informational links to help provide background about the process and how libraries are a vital component. As training opportunities are created we will post them to the list and other communication channels. If you have questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us.
