Utah Public Library Service, 2001: An Annual Report.
This annual report of Utah public library services presents data useful for local library planning. This information is presented in two sections: core performance measures and general tables. Statewide summary data and breakouts by the populations of the library jurisdictions are provided for the following core performance measures: (1) visits per capita; (2) circulation per capita; (3) turnover rate; (4) holdings per capita; (5) expenditures per capita; and (6) index of local financial effort. For each measure, the text gives a general description and identifies some of the factors affecting the measure. The general tables report basic library information on a library-by-library basis. Seven tables are given: Basic Library Information; Library Services; Library Resources; Online Access; Library Finances; Comparison of Operating Expenditures; and Jurisdictional Maintenance of Effort Comparison. With each table, additional measures are reported in consolidated charts, and some of the general tables provide trend data for selected library activities. (MES)
