CLO Metrics

Background information

College Libraries Ontario (CLO) has gathered library statistical data from the 24 publicly funded colleges in Ontario on an annual basis for many years. In the past, this has been collected by various Ontario colleges on behalf of CLO. At the request of CLO and the college libraries, OCLS has taken on the annual library data collection process, starting in 2020 with a survey to collect data for FY 2019/20 and 2020/21, under the guidance of the CLO Metrics and Assessment Committee. Recent reports can be accessed below by library staff with an OCLS web account. OCLS has begun to archive past reports, which can be accessed by emailing Holly Sarvari ( 

OCLS works closely with the CLO Metrics and Assessment Committee to lead research projects relating to the annual statistical survey. For information, please contact Holly Sarvari (
