IMLS and Gates Foundation Study "Opportunity for All: How the American Public Benefits from Internet Access at U.S. Public Libraries"

Posted by Bogdan Tereshchenko - On June 30, 2010 (EST)

In March 2010, the Institute of Museum and Library Services released a study of the use of computers at public libraries. It shows that 30 million Americans used a public library computer for a job-related reason last year, of whom 75 percent searched for a job online, and half of those filled out an online application or submitted a r?sum?.

The public library computers should be used to provide computerized accounting software training. There are hundreds of Microsoft Certified Dynamics Trainers and consultants who are out of work that can provide computerized accounting software training at the Libraries. Accounting positions for Dynamics accounting clerks as of July 2010 are bountiful - but there is a lack of accounts payable, receivable, inventory and payroll clerks who are trained on the Dynamics accounting software products to fill those positions. Based on my research in California, I cannot locate any re-employment training centers that offer training on the Dynamics products Providing the training these clerks need using the public library computers could help hundreds if not thousands of unemployed accounting clerks get jobs as Dynamics accounting clerks.

I read with interest your comments about the lack of workforce who are trained on Dynamics accounting software - do you have or know where to find data on the penetration level of Dynamics software, current employment size, and projected growth? Thanks!
