Preliminary Public Library Data Now Available

Attn: Public Library Directors & PLAR Respondents

Preliminary data from the 2010 Public Library Annual Report (PLAR) is now available in an Excel spreadsheet and ready for your review. There is still time for revisions, so please let me know if you have any changes to your library’s data. A more current version of the data will be available on LRS-i the last week in April.

Please note, this preliminary data does not include complete data for libraries that had not submitted reports prior to March 23, 2011. In addition, the data is not verified (i.e., it has not been through all phases of edit checks).

We partner with the Library and Information Science program at University of Denver's Morgridge College of Education to provide research fellowships to current MLIS students.

This project is made possible by a grant from the U.S. Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS).
