University Library Statistics

The Joint Committee on University Library Standards was appointed early in 1968 by ARL and the Association of College and Research Libraries for the purpose of formulating a statement of standards on various aspects of university library operations and administration. The committee collected data from 50 libraries on resources, personnel, finance, space, public service, administration, and professional school libraries prior to any attempt to develop standards. That raw data is presented in this volume.
