Learn key findings and takeaways from national research on cardholder signup policies from public libraries across the country.

In 2023, BPL launched a research project to collect and study cardholder signup policies from public libraries across the nation. The project aims to identify the range of policies and procedures which govern cardholder access as well as the rationale used for establishing these policies. Research findings have been summarized in a report made available to the library field beginning spring 2024. Join us for a discussion about the inspiration for this study, how the research was conducted, and key findings and takeaways using data from more than 1,800 public libraries across the United States.  

Presented by: 

  • Amy Mikel, Director of Customer Experience, Brooklyn Public Library
