State Library Administrative Agency (SLAA) Survey

OMB 3137-0072

OMB 3137-0072

Pursuant to Public Law 107-279, this State Library Administrative Agency Survey has been conducted by the Institute of Museum and Library Services under the clearance number 3137-0072, which expires 01/31/2023. State Library Administrative Agencies (“SLAAs”) are the official agencies of each state charged by state law with the extension and development of public library services throughout the state (20 U.S.C. 9122.) The purpose of this survey is to provide state and federal policymakers with information about SLAAs, including their governance, allied operations, developmental services to libraries and library systems, support of electronic information networks and resources, number and types of outlets, and direct services to the public. Through the FY 2010 collection, the SLAA Survey was conducted annually; beginning with the FY 2012 collection, the survey is conducted biennially. Because the FY 2020 collection will not begin until early 2021, we are carrying over the documentation and estimated burden associated with the FY 2018 data. OMB approved the SLAA Survey collection on 01/15/2020, with an expiration date of 01/31/2023. Due to the development of Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic questions for the FY 2020 SLAA Survey in Spring 2020, this supporting statement for PRA submission is to request a new three-year approval. Except for slight adjustments to respondent burden, the content of the statement is identical to that submitted for the renewal in 2019. This action is to create the survey forms and instructions for the assessment for the next three years.

The latest form for State Library Administrative Agency (SLAA) Survey expires 2023-10-31 and can be found here.
