Survey on Public and Academic Libraries - Results by country

Data collected in 2013 and in 2015

 

KIC is a longitudinal survey to monitor the European Public and Academic library landscape developments. It essentially attempt to follow the same respondents by gathering the same data over a period of time.

The most recent KIT Survey was conducted in October-November 2015. Results of the previous survey - which was conducted in 2013 - are also kept for reference on this page.

Please note that data collection methods and statistical systems vary considerably around Europe.

Both surveys displays the most recent statistics received by EBLIDA at the time of collection, whenever it was made available by National Library Associations.
