Dear Collection Development Librarian,

Every year LJ tracks public library purchasing and circulation trends by format, genre and subject and our Prepub Alert editor, Barbara Hoffert, distills the results into a compelling feature. Please help Barbara uncover the latest trends by answering LJ’s 2016 materials survey.

Please click on the link below to download and fill out the survey. As a thank you for participating,
we're offering a chance to win your choice of a $300 Apple Store gift card or a $300 American Express gift card!

Please respond by November 7.

You may estimate spending and circulation percentages, where applicable. If it’s easier for you, fill in the actual numbers, and we will calculate the percentages. Questions about the survey or deadline extension requests can be emailed to Laura Girmscheid at

This survey is recommended for individuals who are involved in the selection of books and/or media for public libraries. If this does not describe you, feel free to forward this invite to someone better able to answer for your library.

Survey results will be published in LJ’s February 15, 2017 Spring Announcements issue. Thank you in advance for taking part in this major research effort!


Rebecca T. Miller, Editorial Director
