Survey of Public Libraries, LIBGIS I. 1974.
Eckard, Helen M.
Data are presented for 1,460 of 1,486 public libraries surveyed. The first five tables list data items on receipts, expenditures, resources, circulation, and staff for 334 individual libraries serving populations of 100,000 or more. The remaining 39 tables are aggregate data presenting inflated national estimates based on data for the 1,460 responding libraries. They are arranged according to the major categories of the survey instrument--public service outlets, staff, receipts, expenditures, collections, loan transactions, facilities, and library hours and days open per week. The appendices include a description of the survey methodology. (Author/KP)
