PLDS Statistical Report Demo

Sunday, January 22, 2012
10:30 am to 12:00 pm, US/Central

PLAmetrics is a portal to the Public Library Data Service (PLDS) Statistical Report digital database. The database offers you access to all the yearly PLDS data currently available (2006-2011). The Report is compiled from surveys submitted by public libraries across the United States and Canada and presents timely and topical data on finances, library resources, annual use figures and technology to assist public library administrators in making informed management decisions. In addition, each annual PLDS Report contains a special survey highlighting statistics on one service area or public library topic. The report also is available each year as a print publication at the ALA Store. See: http://pla.org/ala/mgrps/divs/pla/publications/plds/index.cfm
