4.2 | The library conducts a community needs assessment for technology resources in languages other than English
Technology needs may be different for community members who have English as a second language, for example, these groups may emphasize a need for online English language learning resources or workforce development tools that other community groups do not. Depending on a library's community, English as a second language speakers may be a significant portion of the service area. Conducting a needs assessment with this group (or different language groups) contributes to increasing equity in digital inclusion strategies.
