Visitor surveys

Surveys on site at the Bpi

In addition to the barometric surveys of visitor numbers and in parallel to national research programmes carried out annually for developing interprofessional understanding about books, reading, and developments of uses in libraries, the Studies and research service carries out other types of study on site at the Bpi.

Surveys, analysis of statistical data, individual or collective interviews, observation, are the methods most frequently used in the framework of these works, which bear on the composition of visitors, use of specific collections or how many visitors use the dedicated spaces.
