Resources to support assessment and evaluation, including library statistics and data tools.

Maryland Public Library Statistics for Download

Maryland public library statistics in PDF format are available for immediate download. These summary files use data from the annual Maryland Public Libraries Survey. If you would like to use these statistics in Tableau, it is recommended that raw Excel files be used. For questions, historic data, or downloads in other formats, including Excel, please contact Yana Demireva. Historic data (5+ years old) can also be downloaded via SAILOR.

 

Note: There is a lag between data collection and publication. FY2021 data will be available for download in July 2022.

Maryland Public Libraries Survey Data Dashboard

This interactive dashboard features public library statistics from FY2014 to FY2018. For the underlying Tableau workbook download, please contact Yana Demireva. Dashboard is best viewed in fullscreen mode (scroll to the right and use the fullscreen button in the bottom right corner of the dashboard). The dashboard can also be viewed on Tableau Public.
