The Digital Census Preparation Manual

The Digital Equity Laboratory is thrilled to announce the release of their manual: Preparing for the First Digital Census. This manual is for anyone who intends to work with communities towards a complete count during Census 2020. If you or your organization is considering providing internet access or digital tools and services, the curricula and tools in this manual will help you create safe digital and non-digital pathways to participation for your patrons or community. We also hope it can help you and your organization decide which role to play.

Thank you for being a part of our pilot workshops and for your invaluable feedback. We'd like to extend our sincere appreciation to our hosts across the state: Metropolitan New York Library Council, Ramapo Catskills Library System, Queens Public Library), Pioneer Library System, Suffolk Cooperative Library System, Brooklyn Public Library, and the NYC Department of Parks & Recreation.

The Library Complete Count Committee (LCCC) will be taking forward this curriculum as we collectively prepare for the 2020 Census.
