Wireless Networking: Getting Wifi Statistics

Other States using WhoFi

Before getting a statewide contract for WhoFi, we looked at what other states are doing for wifi sessions statistics.

We found three other state libraries that have engaged with WhoFi and appear satisfied with how things are going so far:

About the WhoFi Program

 

The Alaska State Library has purchased a statewide subscription for WhoFi wireless usage counter software. 

This edition of WhoFi is designed especially for libraries to provide them with the wireless session count required on the Public Libraries Survey and it anonymizes network data to protect patron privacy. WhoFi's easy-to-read reports and charts assist directors in communicating the library’s community impact and in making data-driven decisions regarding library services.

We encourage all Alaska public libraries and their branches to take advantage of this free opportunity. Contact the State Library Library Technology Consultant to enroll your library.
