Office for Research and Statistics (ORS)

The Office for Research and Statistics (ORS) provides expert advice on all matters related to research and statistics about libraries, librarians, and library staff to association staff, members, and the public. Its multiyear study undertaken with the support of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, Public Library Funding and Technology Access, is the most comprehensive survey of patrons' use of library technology ever undertaken; its 2009 report Job-Seeking in U.S. Public Libraries provides the quantitative underpinning of Crisis in Employment: A Librarian's Guide to Helping Job Seekers.
