Definitions:

County -- The county in which the administrative entity is located.
Total Population Chartered OR Contracted to serve most recent -- This element is prefilled based on most current Census population estimates for your legal service area. If you believe this data to be incorrect, contact State Library Data Coordinator, 605-773-3131. Enter the population of the PRIMARY governmental unit (s) that supports the library’s services. This is the governmental unit from which the library has its authority to exist. This includes services extended by formal contract as well. This should be an exact number and largely based on most recent U.S. Census or school district numbers. Populations that are served without a formal contract or with little or no fiscal support are reported in A17, not here. Contact your State Library liaison for assistance with this question.
Total Operating Income -- Auto-summed. D17 (total operating income) and E09 (total operating expenditures) should be nearly the same number. If not, you must provide a note explaining how much was carried over or forfeited if your budget was zeroed out at the end of the fiscal year.
Annual Public Service Hours/Year (ALL outlets) -- Public Service Hours/Year (Average weekly hours X 52 weeks). This is the total annual public service hours for all outlets combined. Report the sum of all public service hours for all library facilities (including bookmobiles), for the entire year. For bookmobiles, report only the hours in which the bookmobile is open to the public. Do not include hours for deposit collections or similar service outlets or administrative hours when the library is not open to the public.
Registered Users -- Total Number of Registered Users. A registered user is a library user whom has applied for and received an identification number or card from the public library that establishes the conditions under which the user may borrow materials. Do not report this figure unless the library has purged its file at least once within the last three years. If the library does not have a user’s registry, report the total service population. (see A16). If the library has household registration rather than or in addition to individual registration, the library should report individuals by multiplying the number of households registered by the average number of persons in each household in the state.
Annual Total Attendance in Library -- Total Attendance in Library Report the total number of persons per year entering the library including persons attending activities, meetings, and those persons requiring no staff services. It is recommended that libraries use the method described in Output Measures for Public Libraries 2nd ed. (ALA 1987). Note: Each patron is counted every time they come to the library for any reason. (If you do NOT have an electronic counter, count attendance for two typical weeks and multiply the number count by 26 OR count exact attendance for one week and multiply by 52.)
Total Circulation -- Auto-summed. Circulation Transactions. The act of lending an item from the library collection for use generally (although not always) outside the library. This activity includes charging, either manually or electronically, and also renewals, each of which is reported as a circulation transaction. Do not report in-house use of library materials. Circulation of items borrowed on interlibrary loan is counted and included here. Large Print circuit books are included here. Total annual circulation of all library materials of all types, including renewals. Note: Count all materials in all formats that are charged out for use outside the library. Interlibrary loan transactions included are only items borrowed for users. Do not include items checked out to another library.
Annual Total Reference Transactions Completed -- "Reference Transactions are information consultations in which library staff recommend, interpret, evaluate, and/or use information resources to help others to meet particular information needs. A reference transaction includes information and referral service as well as unscheduled individual instruction and assistance in using information sources (including web sites and computer-assisted instruction).Count Readers Advisory questions as reference transactions. Information sources include (a) printed and non-printed material; (b) machine-readable databases (including computer-assisted instruction); (c) the library's own catalogs and other holdings records; (d) other libraries and institutions through communication or referral; and (e) persons both inside and outside the library. When a staff member uses information gained from previous use of information sources to answer a question, the transaction is reported as a reference transaction even if the source is not consulted again. If a contact includes both reference and directional services, it should be reported as one reference transaction. Duration should not be an element in determining whether a transaction is a reference transaction. NOTE: It is essential that libraries do not include directional transactions in the report of reference transactions. Directional transactions include giving instruction for locating staff, library users, or physical features within the library. Examples of directional transactions include, “Where is the reference librarian? Where is Susan Smith? Where is the rest room? Where are the 600s? Can you help me make a photocopy?” If an annual count of reference transactions is unavailable, count reference transactions during a typical week or weeks, and multiply the count to represent an annual estimate. [If the sample is done four times a year, multiply totals by 13, if done twice a year multiply by 26, if done only annually, multiply by 52.] A ""typical week"" is a time that is neither unusually busy nor unusually slow. Avoid holiday times, vacation periods for key staff, or days when unusual events are taking place in the community or in the library. Choose a week in which the library is open its regular hours."
Annual Number of Public Access/Internet USES/sessions (per 30-minute sessions) -- Number of Users of Public Internet Computers. Report per year. Report the total number of half-hour sessions (30 minutes or less) Internet computers uses in the library during the last year. If the computer is used for multiple purposes (Internet access, word-processing, OPAC, etc.) and Internet users cannot be isolated, report all usage. Sign-up forms or web-log tracking software also may provide a reliable count of uses. While an accurate count is preferred over a guesstimate, a statistically accurate guess can be obtained by conducting a “count” during a typical two week period. Multiply this number by 26. Numbers submitted CANNOT be exactly the same year after year. NOTE: The number of users may be counted manually, using registration logs. Count each use. If a patron uses the computer for 75 minutes that would be recorded as “three (3) uses.”
Total Library Programs -- Auto-summed.
Total Program Attendance -- Auto-summed.
