Smith, Stanley V.
The two-volume report (Part A is ED061999 and Part B is ED065136), which included data received by the tabulation deadline from libraries of single-campus institutions and branch-campus libraries of multicampus institutions, presented individual reports for 2,514 libraries and 5 joint libraries. To preserve comparability with previous surveys, data for parts of a multicampus institution were consolidated into a single institutional report, thus converting the 2,514 individual libraries into 2,299 institutional libraries. To these were added 164 institutional libraries that failed to meet the initial tabulation deadline and estimates for 72 libraries that did not respond. The library data in this report are thus national estimates of all academic institutions that provide library service. The survey findings are grouped under the following headings: library holdings; library operating expenditures; professional and nonprofessional staff; vacant positions; hours of assistance; staff salaries; developmental areas; and, ratios of holdings, expenditures,and staff.
