A guide to library code numbers provides a complete list of ARL members. Research library resources, staffing, expenditures, and interlibrary loan activity are covered in the report's data tables. Further report sections include an analysis of selected variables; Ph.D. and enrollment statistics; the ARL Library Index, a summary of rank order tables for ARL university libraries; and the rank order tables for volumes in library, volumes added (gross), microform holdings, current serials, professional staff, nonprofessional staff, total staff, materials expenditures, materials and binding expenditures, salaries and wages expenditures, total operating expenditures, total items loaned, total items borrowed, and current serials expenditures.
