Jag tror resultaten av den här amerikanska enkäten kan vara
av intresse för många svenska bibliotek.

Statistical abstract of the United States finns enligt en snabbkoll
på Libris vid hela tjugofem bibliotek, utgallrad i Uppsala och
Riksdagsbiblioteket möjligen beroende på att den finns fritt på
nätet från startåret 1878.
