ALS 2012 Survey Overview


To begin the statistical survey, refer to the Fiscal Year 2012 (July 1, 2011 - June 30, 2012) ALS Instructions for each question. You may want to look at your numbers from the ALS 2010 Survey.


Then check our Guidelines (our sample worksheet for the ALS 2012 survey).   Question-by-question, these guidelines include clarifications and provide some very useful numbers (e.g., Aleph-generated item counts).  Do not complete the sample worksheet, it is intended to provide guidance only.


After reviewing all guidelines, fill out the online ALS survey on the NCES website as requested.  However, do not submit your survey to NCES without first having it reviewed by Curtis Kendrick and the Libraries Statistics Task Force.  Instead, input your data into the ALS online form and choose the "save" option.  Then send your saved draft to Shamiana Pond as instructed below.


Fyi, the online survey form and instructions are available from the NCES website at


You will need your library's access information, which was mailed to you by the NCES.
