Compare Public Libraries

Blake writes: “The US National Center for Education Statistics’ Compare Public Libraries site allows users to compare one library, the “library of interest,” with a group of similar libraries, “the comparison group,” or any selected public library system in the country. For example, a user may wish to compare one library’s total circulation with the total circulation of a group of libraries with similar total expenditures. This tool has a new look and it has been updated with 2002 data.”
