2.1 | Web development software (e.g. Dreamweaver, CoffeeCup) is available in at least one library location
The Internet is increasingly being used by individuals to create, collaborate, and share rather than just consuming content that already exists. Including web development software on public computers allows patrons to experiment with and learn new technology skills and become contributors to the technology landscape. Good web development software enables patrons to more easily create websites and use programming languages that might otherwise take years to use effectively. Though maker-spaces for youth often include web development software, if these spaces are not available to everyone, adults are not able to also benefit from skills development that may improve their employment prospects.
FOR THE ASSESSMENT
Answer Yes if web development software is available to all patrons on at least one public access computer at one or more locations.
Answer No, but plan to in the next year if web development software is not available to the public at any location currently, or is only accessable to certain patrons, but you plan to offer such software on at least one public computer in the next year.
Answer No, would like to but cannot at this time if you cannot install web development software on at least one public computer, perhaps due to budget constraints or IT policies external to the library.
Answer No, we have no plans to do so at this time if you have decided not to install web development software due to lack of demand or other reasons.
