Library Statistics of Colleges and Universities, 1982.
Heintze, Robert A.
This report is based on data gathered in a 1982 survey of college and university libraries conducted as part of the Higher Education General Information Survey (HEGIS). The survey had a 91% response rate from a universe of 3,326 colleges and universities. The 1982 data categories cover the following time frames: staff and library hours as of fall 1982; holdings, acquisitions, receipts, expenditures, circulations, and interlibrary loans for the school year ending in June 1982; and transactions for a typical week in spring 1982. The last prior survey of college and university libraries was conducted in fall 1979. Data from the two surveys are compared to show changes over the years. Tabular summaries of the 1981-82 survey are presented in two parts. Tables in part one are stratified, to provide aggregates for the following categories: universities, 4-year institutions with graduate students, 4-year institutions without graduate students, and 2-year institutions. The tables in part two provide aggregates in the new NCES (National Center for Education Statistics) institutional categories: Doctoral; Comprehensive; General Baccalaureate; Two-Year; Specialized; and New. Appendix A describes these categories. (THC)
