2018-2019 Instructions. The AOS instructions are very helpful to have open while working through the AOS. The document is arranged by the section and line number of the AOS. Use your pdf's bookmark function to quickly move around the document by selecting numbered sections.

The 2018-2019 Trends Questions and Form. This is a new section for 2018-2019; this year's survey gathers information about law library digitization activities. Trends questions are a set of questions that will change each year and rotate every so often. These are questions that people are interested in but deemed not necessary to update each year.

The 2018-2019 Worksheet.The worksheet is intended to visually supplement the Instructions. Again, you may use your pdf's bookmark function to quickly move around the worksheet by selecting numbered sections. The worksheet also provides the formulas used for calculated sums which are lines that will be calculated for you.

Suggestions for Collecting and Compiling Data for ALLStAR.This document is intended to help law library personnel prepare for, and then complete, library input/output surveys such as the ALLStAR Official Survey (AOS) -- to help to determine “how and where do we find the numbers to respond to this survey question?” It does not replace the document of instructions and guidance for completing the AOS; this guide supplements those instructions. As importantly, we seek help from practitioners with improving this document by letting us know when you and your library has tools and practices which can be replicated by other ALLStAR subscribers.
