Starting in Fiscal Year 2010, data collected through the annual report survey is made available only through the OLIS web site.
The Office of Library and Information Services makes available for analysis raw data collected through the 2012 Annual Report Survey for Rhode Island Public Libraries. No corrections have been made to the data and it is presented as libraries have reported it.
Please be careful in your use and interpretation of the data. It can be quite confusing to tell definitively to what some of the numbers refer without due deliberation. If you have suggestions for improvements or have developed analyses that would be helpful to the community, please contact Lauren Miklovic.
