Texas Academic Library Statistics, 1990.
Texas State Library, Austin. Dept. of Library Development.
The statistics in this report on Texas academic libraries are based on data collected and verified for the national Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System (IPEDS) by the Texas State Library. The brief introduction notes some of the advantages and disadvantages of using IPEDS data for this report, which is intended to be a comprehensive source of statistical data on academic libraries in the state. Data are then presented in tabular format for the 163 participating institutions (40 four-year public institutions and 56 four-year private institutions, which include some law and medical libraries, and 67 two-year institutions). Data tables are organized by type of institution and include data on each academic library's collections, personnel, income, expenditures, circulation, special services, and facilities. Operational definitions and the IPEDS survey form and instructions are appended. (MAB)
