2005 Public Library Stats Finalized

After months of reporting, reviewing, and verifying the 2005 Colorado Public Library Annual Report is complete and the data finalized.

Look for the latest public library statistics on LRS.org at:

Statistics and Input-Output Measures for Colorado Public Libraries

http://www.lrs.org/asp_public/stats_2005.asp

Colorado Public Library Interactive Statistics

http://www.lrs.org/asp%5Fpublic/stats05/

And for a perspective over time, try the Colorado Public Library Historic Statistics

http://www.lrs.org/asp%5Fpublic/historic/

Thanks to all the respondents who provided additional information as I worked through the reams of edit checks. Working together we?ve collected data that is useful to the entire public library community.

Remember, it is never too early to start planning for this year?s report. Many of the statistics on the annual report require year-round planning. We?ve got tools and strategies for making data collection easier for you and your staff. For example, the LRS Random Date Generator < http://www.lrs.org/interactive/randomdate.asp> is a great tool for determining the dates for periodic data collection.

If you need help with your data collection or have questions about the annual report, please feel free to contact us anytime. We?re always happy to help.
