Directory of Michigan Library Statistics. 1994 Edition. Reporting 1992 and 1993 Statistical Activities including: Public Library Statistics, Library Cooperative Statistics, Regional/Subregional Statistics.
Leaf, Donald C., Comp.; Neely, Linda, Comp.
This edition focuses on statistical data supplied by Michigan public libraries, public library cooperatives, and those public libraries which serve as regional or subregional outlets for blind and physically handicapped services. Since statistics in Michigan academic libraries are typically collected in odd-numbered years, they are not included here. The statistical tables itemize sources of library income, types of expenditures, library materials and collection totals, circulation and interlibrary loan traffic, reference transactions, patrons, hours, and staff. Automation trends, like the presence and use of online public access catalogs, fax document delivery, full-text databases, dial access to library catalogs, and microcomputers for public use, are also numerically outlined. Tables and data summaries also report on the activities of Michigan library cooperatives and of regional and subregional libraries which serve the blind and physically handicapped. (BEW)
