The Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) has just released national public library data for FY2014. The Division of Library Development has used this data to develop a number of resources including:
- National Public Library Chart and Report Creator – compares every public library in the U.S. to other similar libraries, both in-state and in the U.S. as a whole
- National Rankings for Connecticut – see how CT compares to other states
- Public Library Statistics – State Comparisons – see how the states compare in important library statistical measures
- National Public Library Data – data from libraries throughout the U.S., use filters to narrow by state or population group.
These and many other resources are available in the Statistics for CT Public Libraries LibGuide.
