Directory of Agencies Collecting Statistical Data from College & University Libraries.
LaBrake, Lynn B., Ed.
This directory of organizations and agencies that survey academic libraries for statistical information on a regular basis includes 104 organizations representing state and federal agencies, college and university administrative bodies, accrediting organizations, all types of library organizations and associations, and publishers. The directory reflects the status of statistical data gathering from academic libraries in the United States and Canada during the period 1982-1984. It is the result of a project done by the Library Administration and Management Association (LAMA) Statistics for College and University Libraries Committee; the committee members participating in the project are included in the directory. The organizations or agencies are arranged alphabetically within the geographic area covered by their survey. The address and contact person, if identified, are listed for each agency. Each entry also lists the title of the survey instrument and data on its publication, coverage, frequency, currency, availability, and use of definitions. If the source of the definitions is known, it is included as well. Concluding the directory are indexes of agencies, contact persons, surveys, and publications. (MAB)
