UK sample library lists
Under the PLR
Scheme details of book loans are collected from a sample of around thirty
public library authorities throughout the United Kingdom. The loans data is collected by sample library computers over the period
of a year (1 July - 30 June) and is transmitted to the PLR computer at
The Current Sample shows the list of authorities which are participating in the sample this year (1 July 2013 - 30 June 2014). Previous years listings are available within the Library Sample Archive. The Forthcoming Sample details authorities which will participate in the sample from 1 July 2014 - 30 June 2015.
Lists of UK and regional 100 most borrowed titles are collated and distributed by PLR yearly. For further information look in our Media Centre.
