ARL Preservation Statistics, 1993-94: A Compilation of Statistics from the Members of the Association of Research Libraries.
Reed-Scott, Jutta, Comp.; And Others
This document presents data from 115 U.S. and Canadian research libraries that were members of the Association of Research Libraries (ARL) during the 1993-94 fiscal year. The Preservation Statistics questionnaire which is included is designed to yield statistical information on the current level of preservation efforts in research libraries, and on the key organizational, functional, and fiscal components that characterize preservation programs. The report is divided into three parts. In the first section, summary data tables display the aggregated statistics describing the current level of preservation efforts in ARL libraries. The tables show statistics for: personnel; expenditures; conservation and preservation treatment; and preservation microfilming. The second section provides an analysis of the core data for all reporting ARL libraries. The key organizational, functional, and fiscal components that characterize preservation programs in ARL libraries and that distinguish between program levels are analyzed. The third section is an analysis of core data based on size of collection. A copy of the annual questionnaire and footnotes to the 1993-94 Statistics are also provided. (Author/AEF)
