Federation of Ontario Public Libraries

Partnerships

There are six types of partnerships for which we have data and each has fairly detailed breakdowns that I will list at the end. Here are the types for which we have data. All but Business Partnerships start in 2011:

H1.1.1 – Consortia

H1.2.1 – Friends of the Library or other charitable group

H1.4.1 – Cultural Partnerships

H1.5.1 – Educational Sector Partnerships

H1.7.1 – Government Services

H1.9.1 – Business Partnerships

 

For five we have a Yes/No question: do you have X? And, in three of those cases we have a question: if so, how many? The spreadsheet has counts from these two questions for each band for each year from 2011-2016 for these types of partnerships:

H1.2.1 – Friends of the Library or other charitable group

H1.4.1 – Cultural Partnerships

H1.5.1 – Educational Sector Partnerships

 

Two have a Yes/No question but do not has how many. This spreadsheet has the counts of the yes responses:

H1.7.1 – Government Services

H1.9.1 – Business Partnerships (data from 2012-2016)

 

Consortia has the breakdowns only and this spreadsheet just has a sample grabbed not quite randomly of a few of the types of consortia.
