This report is based on information from the 1990-91 Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System (IPEDS) Academic Libraries survey, a U.S. Department of Education vehicle for collecting data from all postsecondary institutions in the United States. The data in this report represent colleges and universities with accreditation at the higher education level as recognized by the Secretary of Education; at the national level, 87 percent of the libraries responded. The tables in the publication summarize library staff, library operating expenditures, library collections, library loan transactions, and library service per typical week for libraries in higher education institutions. Statistics are presented for the nation and state-by-state. Staff and service data are for fall 1990, while the remainder of the data cover the 1990 fiscal year (i.e., any 12-month period between July 1, 1989, and September 30, 1990, that corresponds to the institution's fiscal year). The survey form is included. (KRN)
