The Institute of Library and Museum Services has just announced the release of the Annual Data and Survey Results of American Public Libraries. Data from the Public Library Survey of United States public libraries is now available for download for FY2015.
Once again the Connecticut State Library has developed data visualization tools, based on this new data, that allow states and individual libraries to evaluate levels of library service and resources:
- National Public Library Data – (examines individual library data by region, state, and population served)
- National Public Library Data, By State – (shows how states compare with each other)
- National Public Library Chart and Report Creator – (for use by individual libraries to evaluate and advocate for their libraries)
