Reporting Errors Workbook 2014 for the Texas Public Library Annual Report

Texas public libraries complete the Public Libraries Annual Report each year. Once your library’s report is submitted, staff at TSLAC complete an analysis of the data for any potential errors or accreditation issues. You are then sent a reporting errors workbook, which outlines the accreditation issues, possible errors, and any requests for clarifications. Learn how to quickly determine whether the library’s report needs amending or if your library may have an accreditation issue. You will also learn how to use the workbook to assist in planning for the next year’s report.
