Non-automated Library Reporting

Non-automated libraries have a few options for gathering and storing information until the NYS software, Bibliostat, is available for libraries to complete their reporting to the State.  Some libraries have chosen to enter their data through out the year using the Excel Spreadsheet created by NCLS (this spreadsheet will not contain any new questions or numbering changes from DLD so pay close attention when entering this data into Bibliostat to make sure you are entering data into the correct category).  Other libraries have created their own spreadsheets or maintain paper copies of their data.    

Please refer to the tutorials and other resources below to assist you in the preparation of your Annual Report.
