Library Perceptions 2021: International Survey of Library Automation- Results Announced

Marshall Breeding recently released the fourteenth edition of the International Survey of Library Automation. You can view the survey at https://librarytechnology.org/perceptions/2020

The survey presents the latest data on how libraries perceive the effectiveness of the strategic technology systems upon which they depend for their daily operations and to fulfill the expectations of their patrons. This report presents and interprets survey responses gathered from November 2020 through February 2021.

Nate Curulla, Owner and CRO, recently commented on the feedback from the survey:

This year’s annual Perceptions Survey has been posted and I wanted to take a minute to thank everyone who took the time to fill out this survey and share your experiences with the world!! We greatly appreciate all of the positive comments and ratings we received, as well as the feedback we have gotten on how we can improve our services.

Although we had a very strong showing for 2020, we are always looking to improve so as always, if you have a specific request or concern please let us know (you can always reach out to me by phone or email!) and we will do our very best to take care of it for you.

Thank you again, we are blessed to have the opportunity to work with such an amazing group of diverse libraries. You are all leading the way in this industry and we are thrilled to be a part of your journey.
