IMLS Library Search & Compare BETA

Want to compare your library with other libraries in your state or other states? If so, check-out the Library Search & Compare beta website from the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS): https://www.imls.gov/labs/search-compare/.

I was interested in comparing just libraries in Wisconsin, so I limited my search by State = WI and then selected Compare Libraries. 2018-08-13_1201

You can also limit your results by total circulation, revenue, staff, and/or service area population ranges (max/min), and even further refine your results by variables related to topics listed in a drop-down menu. 2018-08-13_1203
The dataset can be downloaded to a .csv at anytime.  Try it and be sure to send feedback if you have ideas on how to make the site better. (For example, I recommended that library size, square footage, be included.)
