2022 International Library Automation Perceptions Survey

Every year since 2007, Library Technology Guides has conducted an International Library Automation Perceptions Survey.

The results for the most recent edition were published just the other day.

From the intro:

"The 2022 Library Automation Perceptions Report provides evaluative ratings submitted by individuals representing 2849 libraries from 95 countries describing experiences with 132 different automation products, including both proprietary and open source systems. Since last year, the survey is titled according to the year in which the report is published rather than when the survey period started. The survey results include 544 narrative comments providing candid statements -- both positive and negative – about the products and companies involved or statements of intent regarding future automation plans. This report analyzes the results of the survey, presents a variety of statistical tables based on the data collected, and provides some initial observations."

"It aims to provide information to libraries as they evaluate their options for strategic technology products and to the organizations involved in providing these products and services as constructive criticism to help guide improvements."

It is possible to view the results of all previous surveys on the Library Technology Guides website.

The website is maintained by Marshall Breeding, a well-known library automation expert.
