One of the main principles of the PLSR project is that information and data should be the bedrock of the process. The Steering Committee and Workgroups have collected and analyzed information from many sources, including budget and service data from the systems, Wisconsin library law, and information from other states.

Additionally, workgroups and the Steering Committee are generating a good deal of information that are useful resources for those following along or participating in the process. This page contains the two types of resources, those are have been consulted and those that have been created.

Resources Consulted

Resources Gathered from Other States
Reports, visions and concepts from the Wisconsin library community informing this process

Data and Information gathered as part of the PLSR process
As workgroups research their areas in-depth, data and information will be (and has already been) gathered from in-state and out-of-state sources. This link will be updated as new information that might inform the process is found. Information might include survey findings, reports, recordings of webinars, and more.  Please note that the dates in the folder reflect the date of upload and not the date the material was created.
