Scientific and Engineering Research Facilities at Colleges and Universities, 1998. Topical Report.
National Science Foundation, Arlington, VA. Div. of Science Resources Studies.
On a biennial basis since 1986, the National Science Foundation (NSF) has collected data on issues related to Science and Engineering (S&E) research facilities at U.S. colleges, universities, and biomedical institutions. This report presents the major findings from the 1998 survey and provides a summary of the changes that took place between the 1988 and 1998 surveys. A brief description of the study's methods precedes a discussion of its major findings, which include the amount and distribution of research space, adequacy of the amount of research space and its condition, the construction of S&E research space, the repair/renovation of S&E research facilities, sources of funds for S&E research facilities projects, deferred construction and repair/renovation, minority-serving institutions, animal research facilities, and biomedical research facilities. Appendices contain technical notes, a list of the sampled institutions, the survey questionnaire, a reference list, detailed statistical tables, and a glossary. (YDS)
