Annual Report

If you require assistance with your Annual Report, our Client Services Librarians are happy to help.

We sent all library managers their Polaris Annual Report - Custom report on January 1, 2019 to assist with filling out their LibPAS. Want the details behind what is counted? See the Annual Report - Custom report breakdown.

PLSB's LibPAS Companion Guide (PDF) gives you details as to what each field means and what you should report. Here are some common questions for what to report:

  • Circulation > Direct Circulations > Virtual: Grab a calculator and add up the figures we provide for hoopla, OverDrive and RBdigital.
  • Electronic Performance Measures > Public Wi-Fi Sessions > Number of Wi-Fi sessions: Report the figure for your library from YRL's 2018 Wireless Statistics.
  • Information Services & Use > Library Use > Virtual visits: Report the number of sessions from YRL's 2018 WSFL Statistics.
