Academic Libraries in Virginia, 1979-1980.
Molnar, John E.
The data presented on the activities of 74 academic libraries in Virginia have been compiled by the Council of Higher Education, primarily from the Higher Education General Information Surveys ("College and University Libraries" and "Financial Statistics for Institutions of Higher Education for Fiscal Year Ending 1980"). The narrative analysis comparing activities of the institutions during 1979-1980 with previous years is divided into expenditures, staffing and salaries, collections, and surveys. The bulk of the report consists of 31 tables. The first six tables indicate totals for all academic institutions in terms of library collections, library staff, total library expenditures, unit cost for purchased monographs and periodicals, library services and automated bibliographic search transactions, and photocopying and interlibrary loan activities. Tables seven to 30 provide data on staff salaries and library circulation by clientele type for state-supported four-year institutions, state-supported two-year institutions, and private institutions. Table 31 identifies institutional ranking by 15 library data elements among all academic institutions. Two figures are provided. (RBF)
