Library Research Service Office Overview

The Library Research Service (LRS) generates library statistics and research for library and education professionals, public officials, and the media. LRS reports and analyzes statistics on school, public, and academic libraries, and conducts studies on major library issues that are reported in the Fast Facts and Closer Look series. Topics of continuing interest to the LRS and its clients are the impact of school librarians on student achievement, public libraries and the use of web technologies, and the changing library workforce. LRS also manages Library Jobline.
