Fast Facts: Recent Statistics from the Library Research Service, n116-122 Mar-Nov 1996
Seven issues of a newsletter on recent library statistics provide information on Colorado public libraries, librarian and library assistant salaries, materials challenges, school library media centers, and circulation policies. One 1995 library survey compares average public library salaries with and without an American Library Association (ALA)-accredited Masters of Library Science (MLS), and compares Colorado salaries with national and regional averages. Another survey was conducted to determine prevailing salaries and related data for Public Information Officers (PIOs) in public libraries. One edition of "Fast Facts" provides a comparison of 1994 average hourly wages of librarians and library assistants with related occupations. A report on the location of public libraries showed that over half of public library outlets in Colorado and the nation are located in non-metropolitan areas-public libraries. They can serve as access points to electronically networked information for those who cannot afford or cannot easily obtain a computer with a modem and a subscription to a commercial online service or Internet access provider. Another issue reported on the materials challenges in Colorado public libraries in 1995. One issue provides a status report for Colorado school library media centers for 1995-96. A June 1996 survey of metropolitan libraries in Colorado and nationwide investigated and compared circulation policies for different format materials. (SWC)
