Computer Users Over 60
By Lisa Pearson


May 19 2006

I am part of a group that is conducting a pilot study for a class at the Information School at the University of Washington ( ). We've designed a short survey to help us learn more about obstacles people over 60 may have experienced while learning to navigate the Internet or using a computer. This pilot study may lead to further investigation in this area, and information learned through this survey will guide librarians in designing better computer courses for older adults.

NO PERSONAL INFORMATION IS GATHERED. You will NOT be contacted regarding this survey, NOR will you be added to any electronic lists. This is not SPAM.

Your participation is greatly appreciated. Thanks!
