1 of 4

This study presents data from a survey of 80 academic library directors, deans, and other high-level officials about their library policies on materials storage.  The study helps its readers to answer questions such as:  how many and what kinds of libraries are seeking additional storage space?  What solutions have they been using and plan to use?  How many use off-campus storage?  Or develop cooperative warehousing with other colleges? Or share space on campus with other departments?  In general, how satisfied are librarians with their current storage situation?

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

  • 21.25% of survey respondents were very satisfied with their current storage practices.
  • 30% of colleges with between 1,300 and 3,100 student enrolment FTE shared storage spaces with other departments on campus.
  • Only 2.38% of private colleges in the sample participated in a storage consortium with other colleges.

Data in the 42-page report is broken out by size and type of institution, by tuition level, for public and private institutions and by other useful variables.
