Bibliostat Collect: Home

Bibliostat Collect is the reporting tool used to collect data for the Public Libraries Survey each fiscal year.


The information collected in Bibliostat has 3 purposes:

To determine whether or not the library meets requirements for receiving Grants-in-Aid (see Title 173-1-3),

To collect information for the Institute of Museum and Library Services national annual survey, and

To provide statistical information that helps West Virginia legislators understand the importance of libraries, enable the WVLC to track data, provide library directors with information they need to better administer their libraries, and provide the general public with library statistics.
