Survey of Australian public libraries
I’m conducting a postal survey of public libraries in Australia. I’m sending a questionnaire to 165 of the approximately 1700 public libraries in Australia. The questions are online.
I’m investigating whether public libraries have graphic novel collections and how graphic novels are selected, acquired, catalogued, housed and promoted. I’m hoping my results will show the differences between public libraries in the eight states and territories of Australia. Some states and territories have centralized acquisitions for all public libraries (Western Australia and Tasmania being the best examples) and I want to know if this affects the prevalence of graphic novel collections.
