Library Services Annual Report
Annual Reports are useful in a variety of ways and the compiled information is meant to be shared with students, staff, and community. They can be used to highlight what is happening in the library, pinpoint programmatic strengths and areas for improvement, illustrate trends in circulation from year to year, and assist in goal setting.
