California Library Statistics, 1989. Fiscal Year 1987-1988 Data from Public, Academic, Special, State Agency and County Law Libraries.
Clark, Collin, Ed.
The information reported in this document characterizes libraries in California through statistical tables, profiling each library within its appropriate library type (i.e., public, academic, special, state agency, and county law). The data were gathered through the annual report forms for fiscal year 1987-1988 that were returned by 895 libraries of an estimated total of 1,200 California libraries, excluding school libraries. Presented in the statistical tables are data on activities (e.g., interlibrary loans borrowed and lent, circulation, and total volumes); income; expenditures; staffing; and collections. These data are organized by library type and area population. Also provided is a state summary of library statistics for the fiscal year 1987-1988, plus the two preceding years. The data reported include total operating expenditures, salaries, library materials, full-time staff equivalents, total volumes, circulation, interlibrary loan (ILL) borrowing, ILL lending, and total number of reference questions answered during the year. A list of the libraries represented concludes the report. (SD)
