Statistics on college and university library collections, operating expenditures, and staff salaries and wages for the 1970-71 school year, as well as data on staff for fall 1971 and budgeted operating expenditures for the 1971-72 school year are presented in this report. These data are shown for 2,514 college and university libraries and five joint libraries. The data are presented on the basis of "reporting units" as contained in the basic file of colleges and universities for the Higher Education General Information Survey. A "reporting unit" is defined as a single-computer institution, a main or branch campus of an institution with a single central administration, or an institution that is part of a multi-institutional system. The joint libraries, which represent two or more institutions or branches of institutions, have been added as quasi-reporting units for this survey. Details regarding definitions and other features of the survey are indicated in the questionnaire and accompanying instruction are given in Appendix I. Appendix II lists the new institutions.
