Michigan Library Statistical Report. 1997 Edition.
Michigan Library, Lansing.
This 1997 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 patrons. Statistics on academic libraries are also presented in this edition, and summary statistics for prior fiscal years are included for some data elements. This edition also includes lists of libraries participating in MichiCard, non-resident fees charged, types of automation systems used by libraries, and detail on the technology maintained at each library. The statistical tables itemize patrons, hours and staff; sources of operating income; types of expenditures; library collections; and circulation, reference transactions, and interlibrary loan services. Statistics for automation trends, such as 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 outlined.
