Survey of Academic Library Leadership: Evaluation of the Institutional Digital Repository

  • ID: 4832928
  • Report
  • September 2019
  • Region: Global
  • 48 Pages
  • Primary Research Group

This 48-page report, based primarily on a survey of 73 largely research-oriented colleges and universities, presents the views of library directors, deans, university librarians and other high level library officials about the current state of and future plans for the library’s institutional digital repository.  The study helps its readers to answer questions such as:  how much are libraries currently spending on their repositories and how much do they plan to spend in the future?  How much staff labor is being spent on the repository and have staffs or use of staff time grown in recent years? How satisfied is upper library management with the digital repository? What are its plans for the repository over the next few years – for outreach, marketing, platforms, and more?

Data in the report is broken out by institutional type and size and other variables; for example data is presented separately for R1 and R2 level research institutions, for doctoral institutions and for all other types of college.  In addition, the data is broken out for some personal variables of the survey respondent, such as job title and age range.

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

  • More than 88% of the R1 level institutions in the sample had an institutional digital repository.
  • 49.32% of survey participants felt that their institutional spending on their repositories would remain more or less the same over the next year.
  • Over the past three years private colleges have been more active than public ones in adding staff to their repositories.
