Statistical information sent to the Ministry includes:

  • Circulation of materials, including books, DVDs, eBooks, etc.;
  • In-library materials use;
  • Use of eResources and databases;
  • Use of public computers and wireless;
  • Reference inquiries; and
  • Visits to the Library, including walk-in and electronic.
