The Indices of American Public Library Statistics.
Illinois Libraries, v58 n2 p152-158 Feb 1976
Index values for American public library circulation and expenditures are presented in five statistical tables. The circulation index values are given for each year from 1939 through 1974, and expenditure index values are given for 1951 through 1974. These figures are then compared with figures from the "American Library Directory" and from the United States Bureau of Census "City Government Finances." Another table shows the Index of American Public Library Expenditures corrected for inflation. A complete list of the published reports of the Indices of American Public Library Statistics is included in an appendix. A master summary of all published index values for both circulation and expenditures is also appended. (DS/PF)
