The Comprehensive Mailing List System (CMLS) Subscriber Characteristics Analysis Report for each library will be e-mailed to the regional or subregional librarian within the next week. The report was completed at the conclusion of federal fiscal year 2011 and provides quantitative demographic information about your subscribers’ ages, handicaps, languages, equipment and machines assigned, county codes, and reading interests.


Also the CMLS Criteria Report, which compares CMLS data with annual readership data submitted by network libraries in October 2011, will be e-mailed to each librarian.


Please share both these reports with your administering agency.
