201 Legal Basis Code

Page history last edited by Kim Miller 7 years, 9 months ago

#201 Legal Basis Code

 

The legal basis is the type of local government structure within which the entity functions. It reflects the state or local law, which authorizes the library.

 

Select one of the following:

CC—City/County. A multi-jurisdictional entity that is operated jointly by a county and a city.

 

CI—Municipal Government (city, town or village). A municipal government is an organized local government authorized in a state’s constitution and statutes and established to provide general government for a specific concentration of population in a defined area.

 

CO—County/Parish. An organized local government authorized in a state’s constitution and statutes and established to provide general government.

 

LD—Library District. A library district is a local entity other than a county, municipality, township, or school district that is authorized by state law to establish and operate a public library as defined by FSCS. It has sufficient administrative and fiscal autonomy to qualify as a separate government. Fiscal autonomy requires support from local taxation dedicated to library purposes (e.g., a library tax).

 

MJ—Multi-jurisdictional. An entity operated jointly by two or more units of local government under an intergovernmental agreement which creates a jointly appointed board or similar means of joint governance; to be distinguished from a library which contracts to serve other jurisdictions and from special library districts.

 

Note: Please put city/county combinations under ‘CC’, rather than under Multi-jurisdictional.

 

NL—Native American Tribal Government. An organized local government authorized and established to provide general government to residents of a Native American reservation.

 

Note: Include native Alaskan villages in this category.

 

NP— Non-profit Association or Agency. An entity privately controlled but meeting the statutory definition of a public library in a given state; includes association libraries and libraries with 501(c) designation.

 

SD—School District. An organized local entity providing public elementary, secondary, and/or higher education which, under state law, has sufficient administrative and fiscal autonomy to qualify as a separate government. Excludes "dependent public school systems" of county, municipal, township, or state governments.

 

OT—Other.

 

Changed &/or clarified for FY2012 for those states able to collect. All states to collect for FY2013 survey.
