  • Description
  • About the author

The 2020 Academic Library Trends and Statistics is the latest in a series of annual publications that describe the collections, staffing, expenditures, and service activities of academic libraries in all Carnegie classifications. The one-volume title includes data from Associate of Arts Colleges, Baccalaureate, Master’s Colleges and Universities, and Research/Doctoral-granting Institutions.

The 2020 survey includes data from 1,672 academic libraries in five major categories:

  • Collections (including titles held, volumes, and electronic books)
  • Expenditures (library materials, salaries and wages, etc.)
  • Library services
  • Staffing
  • Equity, diversity, and inclusion

The survey also provides analysis of selected variables and summary data (high, low, mean, and median) for all elements. The 2020 data can be used for self-studies, budgeting, strategic planning, annual reports, grant applications, and benchmarking.
