Louisiana Academic Library Statistics. Selected Statistics from the 1992 IPEDS Survey of Academic Libraries. Revised and Corrected.
Wilder, Stanley, Comp.
This compilation is an unofficial, prepublication summary of the Louisiana 1992 Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System (IPEDS) academic library statistics forms. The official publication will be issued by the National Center for Education Statistics. This document was inspired by the desire of library directors to have a more timely and easy to use presentation of IPEDS statistics. Libraries are grouped according to the Carnegie Classification as Research (Research, Doctoral II, and Medical School), 2-Year, Comprehensive, and Liberal Arts II. Summary data are given for services to patrons, collections, expenditures, and staff. Academic libraries in Louisiana employed 1,428.5 staff members, and contained 10,467,278 volumes. The overall circulation of 2,081,360 items for the state was primarily divided between comprehensive (51.5 percent) and research (42.8 percent) libraries. Ten tables, six graphs, and a copy of the survey instrument are included. (SLD)
