Comparing U.S and Canadian Libraries

My colleague, Bob Molyneux, has done a new comparison of Canadian and U.S. libraries. It’s just a first pass but A First Comparison of Canadian and U.S. Public Libraries finds some interesting insights.
“Visitors to public libraries in Canada and the United States have no trouble knowing they are in a library. There are books and other materials, staff, and computer terminals, and you can check items out. However, a preliminary comparison of comparable data from the two countries’ libraries shows differences in how each country provisions library service and how the citizens of each use their libraries.”
Worth a look in the latest SirsiDynix OneSource Newsletter.
