The data presented in this report from the Association of College and Research Libraries (ACRL) were gathered through a questionnaire for fiscal year 1990-91 that was returned by 106 U.S. and Canadian academic libraries out of the 120 U.S. and 5 Canadian academic libraries that were surveyed. These data are designed to complement the data collected by the Association of Research Libraries (ARL) and the U.S. Department of Education Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System (PEDS). Presented in the statistical tables are data on collections, personnel, expenditures, interlibrary loans and institutional items (i.e., Ph.D. degrees, enrollment, faculty). These data are listed alphabetically by institution name; in addition, each university library is ranked in terms of 18 variables. Also presented is an analysis of selected variables which indicates the range of values provided by the survey participants. Concluding the report are the compiler's notes, the instructions for completing the questionnaire, the questionnaire, and footnotes to the statistics. (MAB)
