Library Statistics of Colleges and Universities, 1979 Institutional Data.
Beazley, Richard M.
Based on data gathered in a survey of college and university libraries which was part of the Higher Education General Information Survey conducted by the National Center for Education Statistics, this report provides highlights of the findings and brief discussions with tables summarizing data on collections, transactions, expenditures, library staff, library staff salaries, and management data. Appendices include a description of the survey methodology, technical notes on microform acquisitions and holdings, and a list of joint libraries and member institutions. The bulk of the report comprises three tables providing statistics on U.S. college and university libraries: (1) number of volumes in collections by state or other area and institution for 1978 to 1979 and fall 1979; (2) library operating expenditures, by category of expenditures and by state or other area and institution, for 1978 to 1979; and (3) indexes on operating expenditures for 1978 to 1979, bookstock held at the end of 1978 to 1979, and library staff as of fall 1979.
