The report presents data from a survey of 116 directors, deans and other high level officials of academic libraries about how they feel about their library’s info technology lending programs.  The study gives detailed data on the level of satisfaction with such programs, plans for library budget support for these programs, and plans for new acquisitions of tablets, virtual reality technology, laptops, digital cameras and other types of information technology. In addition to looking at plans for the future, the report gives detailed data on the level and nature of budgetary support for technology lending programs over the past few years. Survey participants also comment on which library constituencies use the programs the most.

Data in the report is broken out by many personal and institutional characteristics of the survey participants including but not limited to college Carnegie class or type, public and private status, enrollment levels as well a for various personal characteristics. The report includes more than 25 tables and 10 charts or diagrams.

Just a few of the report’s many findings are:

  • Administrators over age 65 were much more likely than others to want to contract the program while those under age 50 were much less likely.
  • In general, the more sophisticated the degree offered by the college, the greater the likelihood that it had increased spending on its technology lending program over the past three years.
  • Art and architecture students were frequently cited as prime users of academic library technology lending programs.
