This report is based on information from the 1994-95 IPEDS (Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System) Academic Libraries Survey. IPEDS is the U.S. Department of Education's vehicle for collecting data from all postsecondary institutions in the United States. The tables in the report summarize library services, library staff, library collections, and library expenditures for libraries in higher education institutions in the 50 states and the District of Columbia. Library staff data are for Fall, 1994. Operating expenditures and library collections are for fiscal year 1994. Library circulation and interlibrary loans are for fiscal year 1994 and other library services are for a typical week in fall of 1994. Data is presented by state, control (public or private), level of highest offering (doctor's, master's, bachelor's, and less than 4-year), size of FTE (Full-Time Equivalent) enrollment (less than 1,500; 1,500-4,999; 5,000 or more), and the 1994 Carnegie classification.
