Education Dept. Releases Biennial Report on Academic Libraries
From the National Center for Education Statistics
In the 2010 fiscal year, academic libraries in the United States lent about 11.2 million documents to other libraries and spent about $1.2-billion on electronic subscriptions to current serials, according to the results of a survey released today by the National Center for Education Statistics, the statistical arm of the U.S. Department of Education. The survey report, “Academic Libraries: 2010 First Look,” presents statistics on library services, collections, library staff, expenditures, electronic services, and information literacy, covering some of the same ground as a similar report from the Association of Research Libraries.
