This publication and the collection of academic library data have been a collaborative effort. First, we would like to thank the academic librarians who provided the information upon which the report is based and the library representatives from each state who assisted in this data collection. The American Library Association (ALA) Office for Research and Statistics and the Academic Libraries Survey Technical Working Group were instrumental in designing the survey. Members of the Academic Libraries Survey Technical Working Group during the time of the study were as follows: C. Colleen Cook, Texas A&M University Libraries; Terri Fishel, Macalester College Library; Martha Kyrillidou, Association of Research Libraries; William Miller and Rita Pellen, Florida Atlantic University Libraries; Patricia Profeta, Indian River State College Library; Mary Jane Petrowski, ALA Association of College and Research Libraries.
