ARL Preservation Statistics, 1995-96: A Compilation of Statistics from the Members of the Association of Research Libraries.
Kyrillidou, Martha, Comp.; Rodriguez, Ken, Comp.; Newton, Joanna, Comp.
This report presents data from 116 U.S. and Canadian research libraries that were members of the Association of Research Libraries (ARL) during the 1995-96 fiscal year. The 1995-96 Preservation Statistics questionnaire was designed to yield statistical information on the current level of preservation efforts in research libraries and on the key organizational, functional, and fiscal components that characterize preservation programs. "Part I: Summary Data Tables" displays the aggregated statistics describing the current level of preservation efforts in ARL libraries. The data tables contain statistics from all respondents for five major data categories, i.e., personnel, expenditures, conservation treatment, preservation treatment, and preservation microfilming. "Part II: Analysis of Core Data for All Reporting ARL Libraries" provides analysis of the responses without displaying the data from individual libraries. The analysis includes data from all reporting university and nonuniversity libraries. The key organizational, functional, and fiscal components that characterize preservation programs in ARL libraries and that distinguish between program levels are analyzed. "Part III: Analysis of Core Data Based on Size of Collection" provides statistical measure in four groupings by size of library. A copy of the questionnaire and a list of ARL member libraries are attached. (Contains 18 references.) (MES)
