The Higher Education Act, Title II C Program : strengthening research library resources : a ten year profile and an assessment of the program's effects upon the nation's scholarship by Samuel Allen Streit( Book )

2 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The aim of this study is to trace how the Title II-C program has facilitated scholarly access to research materials across the United States. It is intended to give evidence of the importance of the Title II-C Program to libraries' efforts toward developing, preserving, and sharing their resources with the nation's scholars. The study consists of two components. Part 1 is a series of brief profiles presenting data pertaining to program funding by Congress, i.e., the number and size of grants awarded; the nature of institutions receiving Title II-C funding; the distribution of projects among the program's three primary funding priorities; and the geographical distribution of the 360 grants awarded between 1978 and 1989. Part 2 consists of 22 representative case studies, 11 of which illustrate the scope of project activity within the three program priorities--bibliographic access, preservation, and collection development. The remaining case studies describe the cumulative contributions of Title II-C funded projects to a single academic discipline: music. Two appendices describe the award process and highlight several issues and questions that merit additional consideration. The report concludes with a glossary of library and information science acronyms. (MAB)
Managing a library binding program by Jan Merrill-Oldham( Book )

2 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Library binding is one of the activities typically included in newly created preservation departments, but librarians continue to discover that transforming a traditional binding program into one that better meets preservation objectives requires considerable investment of time. This resource guide is intended to help libraries review their binding activities from a preservation perspective through the following: (1) suggesting a strategy for gaining expertise through reading and observation; (2) outlining a plan for evaluating the library's and the binder's practices and policies; (3) presenting a strategy for initiating change; and (4) identifying issues that merit attention and discussion. Thirty-six articles dealing with a binding program and relations with a binder are presented. A bibliography lists an additional 18 sources for further reading. (Sld)

Measures for electronic resources (E-Metrics) by Washington, Dc Association of Research Libraries( Book )

1 edition published in 2002 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Association of Research Libraries (arl) E-Metrics study was designed as an 18-month project in three phases: an inventory of what libraries were already doing about data collection for electronic resources and an identification of any libraries that could provide best practice; identifying and testing data elements that could be collected and used as measures for electronic resources for both trends and benchmarking; and linking the use of electronic resources to institutional outcomes. Part 1 of this publication contains the background of the project and the report from Phase One, which documents an analysis of current practice among arl member libraries regarding the collection of information on electronic resources. Part 2 contains the report from Phase Two, which documents the process by which a set of measures was field-tested by project participants, the project investigators' and participants' work with vendor statistics, and the resulting recommendations from the project investigators about which statistics and measures should be collected. Part 2 also includes a compilation of results from the E-Metrics vendor statistics field test. Part 3 provides an instructional module for institutions to use to train their staff to collect the statistics and measures recommended by the investigators, and Part 4 is the data collection manual for the recommended statistics and measures. Part 5 includes two papers regarding the linkage of measures to institutional outcomes, one by the project investigators and another, a commissioned paper on the analysis of accreditation standards of higher education commissions. An appendix presents a comparison of documents that currently have a separate standard for libraries and information sources with those that do not. Includes a cd-rom containing the E-Metrics instructional modules in PowerPoint. (Aef)

ARL Preservation Statistics, 1999-2000 A Compilation of Statistics from the Members of the Association of Research Libraries by Mark, Comp Young( Book )

2 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This document presents data from 122 U.S. and Canadian research libraries that were members of the Association of Research Libraries (arl) during the 1999-2000 fiscal year. Since 1987-88, the number of preservation programs managed by a preservation administrator has grown irregularly from 66 to around 80 in more recent years. A fluctuating growth in preservation expenditures and staffing across the arl membership accompanied this development. Preservation expenditures for ARL's 110 reporting member libraries were $85,842,245 in 1999-2000, indicating a slow, irregular increase in expenditures for preservation since 1991-92. Total preservation staff decreased slightly to approximately 1,753 full-time equivalents (FTEs) in 1999-2000. Among the types of conservation treatment, Level 1 decreased slightly and level 2 increased slightly, while Level 3 roughly doubled. Microfilming activity decreased sharply to 87,531 bound volumes, the smallest amount since 1990. External funding for preservation activities increased to $7,128,397. Analysis of core data for all reporting libraries is provided in the "Introduction" for the areas of organizational structure, personnel, expenditures, conservation treatment, and preservation reformatting. The data contained in the "Library Data Tables" that follow are descriptive indices of preservation activities in research libraries, including preservation staffs, expenditures, and productivity. A copy of the arl preservation statistics questionnaire and instructions, as well as footnotes to the statistics, are included. An appendix lists arl member libraries. (Mes)

Data for 9,469 professional staff members were reported for the 124 arl university libraries, including their law and medical libraries (909 staff members reported by 69 medical libraries and 726 staff members reported by 74 law libraries). For the ten non-university arl members, data were reported for 3,804 professional staff members. The tables are organized in seven major sections: (1) salary figures for all professionals working in arl member libraries, including law and medical library data; (2) salary information for the ten non-university research libraries of arl; (3) data for the general library system of the university arl members, combing U.S. and Canadian data but excluding law and medical data; (4) data on U.S. arl university library members excluding law and medical data; (5) data on Canadian arl university libraries excluding law and medical data; (6) data on medical libraries, combining U.S. and Canadian data; and (7) data on law libraries, combining U.S. and Canadian data. The university population is generally treated in three distinct groups: staff in the general library system, staff in the university medical libraries, and staff in the university law libraries. All branch libraries for which data were received, other than law and medical, are included in the general category, whether or not those libraries are administratively independent. Most tables show Canadian salaries converted into U.S. dollar equivalents at the rate of 1.56878 Canadian dollars per U.S. dollar; however the tables pertaining exclusively to staff in Canadian university libraries express salary data in Canadian dollars.
