The Ontario Ministry of Tourism, Culture and Sport has released its Annual Survey of Public Libraries and now’s the time to make your VITA collections count!

Your VITA Collections affect your responses to the following fields:

C0.5 Reference Special Collections – digital format
C3.2.0 Databases & Database Subscriptions
C3.2.4 No. of Electronic Periodical Titles
G1.3.2 No. of times electric databases are accessed by library users
H1.1 Consortia & Co-operative Purchasing


To walk you through these sections, we’ve created a PDF guide with screenshots and definitions. We’ve provided step-by-step instructions on how to include your VITA content and traffic statistics in the survey.

SOLS is offering a series of webinars about completing your survey.
