Due to current development work on the PLR system, the 2016-17 PLR most borrowed media releases generally published in February will be deferred until the summer. Please note this work has not affected the recent distribution of payments.
This table provides a breakdown of UK public library book loans by broad subject category using the book trade’s standard BIC (Book Industry Communications) subject categories.
The table is based on estimated national loans derived from ALL the book loans collected by the PLR office from its UK sample library authorities (not just from loans of books registered for PLR).
PLR's archive of loans by subject category can be found in our Loans by category archive.
