The Library of Virginia annual collects statistical information from the Virginia Public Libraries through Bibliostat Collect or Bibliostat. The data to be reported is for the fiscal year that has just ended. The fiscal year is July 1 to June 30. However, since Summer Reading Program activities straddle fiscal years, report SRP statistics for the programs beginning prior to June 30 and ending in the new fiscal year.
Bibliostat CONNECT is the companion application to COLLECT that provides libraries with access to more than 20 years of Virginia public library statistics. Through CONNECT users may select and compare library statistics and access select national data. Using CONNECT users may create rank order tables, graphs, views of averages and percentiles to organize results into reports or presentations.
