Culture sector partnerships and activities reported in the 2017 Annual Survey of Public Libraries / 2017 Ontario Public Library Statistics

This report covers culture sector partnerships that public libraries and First Nation public libraries reported in the 2017 Annual Survey of Public Libraries and resulting 2017 Ontario Public Library Statistics.   The report has three data and information sheets organized alphabetically by library.  The first sheet is on library-culture sector partnerships including with archives, art galleries, community museums, ethno-cultural and newcomer service organizations, heritage organizations, municipal cultural planning partnerships, and other cultural partners.  Highlights and examples that libraries reported are included.    The first sheet also has an explanatory key and data summary at the end of the sheet.  The report’s second sheet covers details on other cultural sector partnerships that libraries wrote in that they have.   The third sheet covers cultural programs and attendees.   A fourth sheet shows the Annual Survey’s questions the report draws upon.   Data and text information in the report can assist FOPL and partner organizations in research and advocacy work for the sector.   The report provide qualitative and anecdotal evidence to complement data.   Text field coverage in these reports is not included in published Ontario Public Library Statistics standard reports or as Open Data.

This report is modeled the same way as the Education Partnership report we sent you earlier.   That report is on this FOPL website:   http://fopl.ca/news/ontario-public-library-education-partnerships/
