Texas Public Library Statistics for 1990.
Texas State Library, Austin. Dept. of Library Development.
The information in this book was taken from 1990 annual reports submitted to the Texas State Library by public libraries in that state. The statistics reflect each library's 1990 local fiscal year, i.e., the fiscal year that includes January 1, 1990. The publication opens with general information about the Texas State Library governing or advisory committees, and a map of the major resource systems, followed by a directory of Texas public libraries. The statistics for the individual libraries, which are arranged alphabetically by city name and grouped into tables, are then presented. They identify: (1) the library status, outlets, and users; (2) expenditures; (3) income; (4) collections; (5) local services; (6) technology and resource sharing; and (7) staffing and salaries. Analytical tables then provide comparison data for Texas public libraries in specific population groups for a number of key library output measures, and summary statistics are compiled by region and by county. A list of board chairpersons of public libraries, presidents of friends of library groups, and a sample 1990 annual report form are appended. (MAB)
