2019 Bibliostat Survey Opens July 1st


​​2019 Bibliostat Survey Opens July 1st

The 2019 Bibliostat reporting window will open on Monday, July 1st and close on Thursday, August 15th.  Bibliostat is the annual survey all libraries are required to complete, and has three primary purposes:

  1. To determine whether or not the library meets requirements for receiving Grans-In-Aid (see Title 173-1-3).
  2. To collect information for the Institute of Museum and Library Services national annual survey
  3. 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.

Training sessions for the new portal are available.  

To complete the 2019 survey, you must use the new Bibliostat link -  Links from previous years can no longer be used.

To qualify for the Shirley Smith Award, surveys must be submitted by 5 p.m., Friday, August 2nd.
