C-Car Volume Survey to start October 29, 2012

From Steve at the State Library:

With your help, the Connecticut State Library will conduct a survey starting on Monday, October 29 and ending on Friday, November 9 to determine the volume of items being shipped on Connecticar. For planning purposes we need to periodically get a sampling of the volume on Ccar.

This survey will give us information on how this program serves the citizens of Connecticut. We will be able to use this data to demonstrate the value of spending state and federal dollars on this important service.

Early next week I’ll send instructions on what to count and how to report data. In the meantime, below my signature is a summary of the results of past Ccar volume studies.

March 2007 – Results: 2.2 million items are delivered each year.
(Over 77% or 174 libraries of 225 receiving Ccar service submitted data.)

October 2007 – Results: 1.97 million items are delivered each year.
(Over 68% or 155 libraries of 225 receiving Ccar service submitted data.)

October 2009 – Results: 2.75 million items are delivered each year.
(Over 74.66% or 168 libraries of 225 receiving Ccar service submitted data.)

March 2011 – Results: Over 3 million items are delivered each year.
(79% or 177 libraries of 225 receiving Ccar service submitted data.)

December 2011 – Results: Study again demonstrates approximately 3 million items delivered annually.
(62% or 139 libraries of 225 receiving Ccar service submitted data.)
