In accordance with ORS 357.520, the State Library is once again requesting your cooperation in reporting library statistics for the 2008-09 fiscal year. Oregon law requires that every public library report annually to the State Library. The Statistical Report is due October 1, 2009.
We will be using Bibliostat Collect again for the Oregon Public Library Statistical Report. Bibliostat Collect has a new, easier interface, with a new URL: http://collect.btol.com. The new interface will work with Firefox, as well as Microsoft Internet Explorer, and on Macs as well as PCs. A mailing went out July 17 with your login name and password. Unless your library requested a change, they will be the same as last year.
For those libraries not able to use the online form, please consult with us about alternatives.
Links to the Frequently Asked Questions site, a sample survey template, and instructions are available through the "Reporting Public Library Statistics" page via: http://oregon.gov/OSL/LD/statsmain.shtml. If you would like a telephone walk-though, have questions about survey items, or are interested in a workshop or individual training session, please call or email Ann Reed at (503) 378-5027 or ann.reed at state.or.us. If there are problems with the functioning of the software, call Bibliostat directly at 1-866-785-9935.
If your library is unable to meet the October 1 deadline, a deadline extension must be requested from Library Development Services. The extension request should be signed by the library director, and submitted to Library Development on or before September 25, 2009. If the extension is granted, this will be communicated in writing, and we will stipulate a new deadline to complete the statistical report. The extension request may be submitted to Library Development Services via mail or fax to Mary Mayberry (mary.l.mayberry at state.or.us). The fax number is 503-378-6439.
Please - Call for help early and often! 503-378-5027
