School library data ready to compare and contrast
The State Library now has your 2011-12 school library statistics available for access and comparisons. Bibliostat’s Connect, http://connect.informata.com, is an online tool that gives you easy access to comparative statistics and facts about school libraries in South Dakota.
With Connect, school administrators can quickly and easily identify peer school libraries and then compare your library to others on any of hundreds of measures. You will need the unique login and password assigned to your school district for the annual School Library Survey on Collect. Once into the database, select “South Dakota Schools,” and proceed. All data from the previous two school years in addition to 2011-12 is included.
Can’t remember your login or password? Contact the State Library at (800) 423-6665, or either of the school library coordinators: Joan Upell at (605) 295-3152 or Mary G. Johnson at (605) 295-3173.
