There are a couple little events going on with the State Data Center I wanted to update everyone on.
Public Library Survey 2009
The 2009 Public Library Survey is online and ready for your data. Libraries can surf over to http://collect.btol.com to fill out the survey. Please note that this is a new site for this year. Some enhancements include: compatibility with almost any browser, no pop-ups, and a slightly improved interface.
If you have forgotten or lost your username or password, call me and I can help you out.
There is an “issue” with Section 14 of the survey. Since the 2010 State Grants-in-Aid amount is still yet to be determined, please use your 2009 grant amount in question14.1.
Regional Library Survey
The Regional Library is live as well. Thus far, there are no known issues with this survey.
The 2010 Census is coming soon. The survey forms are expected to be mailed out in March. Chances are, people will be asking questions of you all. The Census 2010 website is pretty useful: http://2010.census.gov And you can always contact me.
