Pricing

Project Outcome users: please see the FAQ page for information about cost.

Impact Survey subscriptions have three different price structures depending upon the type of library:

If you are interested in custom services, please contact us.

Public library subscriptions

For individual libraries, the yearly subscription fee is determined by the library’s budget:

Library total income (in dollars)Yearly fee (US dollars)
0 - 20,000$50
20,001 - 50,000$75
50,001 - 100,000$125
100,001 - 250,000$200
250,001 - 500,000$300
500,001 - 1,000,000$400
1,000,001+$500

Public library organizations and other groups

Library organizations of 10 or more libraries now have several subscription options depending upon the group structure and needs of the group members.

Do you want to coordinate surveys across all of your libraries?

Coordinator subscription

Coordinator subscriptions allow you to monitor your member libraries’ survey activity and schedule group surveys. You can view a list of members, their registration and subscription statuses, and reports from libraries that have fielded the survey on their own. When you schedule a group survey, you collect data from all your libraries’ patrons through a coordinated fielding period. Afterwards, you’ll have access to aggregate data and reports, and your libraries can download individual library reports. You can also download data and a report aggregating survey responses from all your libraries that fielded surveys individually in the current year. You might purchase this subscription if your libraries share some resources – such as an online catalog – but each library has their own budget.

Are you an association or group that provides support to your libraries?

Association subscription

The Association subscription gives you access to all features of a coordinator subscription but also purchases Impact Survey subscriptions for all or some of your member libraries at a discounted rate. This subscription allows your libraries to schedule and run surveys independently. You might purchase this subscription if many of your member libraries are interested in using Impact Survey independently.

Are your libraries independent but share many resources?

Merged system subscription

Maybe you don’t need all the monitoring and reporting features of an Association or Coordinator subscription. Merged system subscriptions allow libraries to simply join together, with one library or library organization acting as the system organizer and the other libraries considered branches or outlets. At the end of the survey, you will receive aggregated reports and data. Libraries that become part of the merged system will not receive individual reports, but the library locations will be included in the dataset. You might purchase this subscription if you have several smaller libraries that share many resources, such as a website and IT staff.

State subscriptions

When you register your state library at ImpactSurvey.org, you’ll immediately receive a FREE observer account. This account gives you

  • Constantly updating aggregate report and data from libraries that have run Impact Survey in the current calendar year
  • Access to your state’s libraries’ Impact Survey reports and data
  • Ability to see Impact Survey registration status of libraries in your state

In addition to your free observer account, you can now purchase special state subscriptions. In order to fit the varying needs and budgets of state libraries, we’ve created two different paid group subscription options. 

Do you want to run coordinated surveys across all of your libraries?

Coordinator subscription

Coordinator subscriptions allow you to monitor your member libraries’ survey activity and schedule group surveys. When you schedule a group survey, you collect data from all your libraries’ patrons through a coordinated fielding period. Afterwards, you’ll have access to aggregate data and reports, and your libraries can download individual library reports. You can also download data and a report aggregating survey responses from all your libraries that fielded surveys individually in the current year. You might purchase this subscription if your state library wants to run group surveys.

Are you a state that wants to provide additional support to your libraries?

Association subscription

The Association subscription gives you access to all features of a coordinator subscription but also purchases Impact Survey subscriptions for all or some of your member libraries at a discounted rate. This subscription allows your libraries to schedule and run surveys independently. You might purchase this subscription if many of your member libraries are interested in using Impact Survey independently.
