Survey of Academic Library Leadership: Outlook for the Library Budget, 2019 Edition

  • ID: 4745938
  • Report
  • 52 pages
  • Primary Research Group
1 of 5

The report presents data for library budgets over the past two years and commentary from 118 academic library deans, directors and provosts about the budget outlook for the library over the next two years.

Data in the report is presented in the aggregate and broken out by institutional enrollment, tuition level, public/private status, type or Carnegie class and also by some personal characteristics of the survey participants.

Just a few of this 52-page report’s many findings are that:

  • MA.PHD-granting colleges, research oriented but not research universities, were perhaps the most pessimistic with nearly two thirds feeling it was not so easy or not at all easy to get the funds they feel they need.
  • The library budgets of the junior college libraries in the sample for the 2018-18 academic year rose from a mean of $434,715 to $435,570 essentially flat and a near 2% reduction in real terms accounting for inflation.
  • As the following table shows, the overwhelming majority of colleges sampled felt that obtaining needed library resources was a struggle
