The Past and Likely Future of 58 Research Libraries, 1951-1980: A Statistical Study of Growth and Change. 1966-1967 (Fourth) Issue.
Dunn, O.C.; And Others
Data presented include (1) a 14-year collection, 1950-51 through 1963-64, on which analyses were performed and predictions generated, and (2) a 3-year "follow-up" collection, beginning in 1964-65, in which subsequent information has been compared with predictions. For each of the 58 libraries the following statistics were obtained: volumes in and added to the collection; money spent for books, periodicals, and binding; salaries and wage expense; professional and non-professional staff size; lowest professional salary paid; and total expenditures. The following were obtained when possible: total reported enrollment, reported graduate student enrollment, and number of PhD degrees granted. This 1966-67 (Fourth) Issue of the report is shorter than the other issues as only that text necessary for understanding the graphs and tables has been included. For more discussion and text the earlier issues may be consulted. (CC)
