Melanie has a love for technology, art, research, information, program development and community service with a desire to provide resources empowering individuals toward the journey of self-actualization.

SEFLIN is proud to present the Florida Public Library Data Dashboard

SEFLIN is proud to present a useful comparison tool for Florida's public libraries. This tool, which uses data collected in the annual Public Library Survey administered by the Institute for Museum and Library Services, compares reported values for things like service area population, collection materials, circulation statistics, program attendence, and fiscal statistics. We hope this tool is useful for librarians looking to develop programming, or those engaging in strategic planning, but look forward to seeing how this tool is used by others!

Please visit the SEFLIN Data Dashboard here.
