Title: The Status of Academic Libraries in the United States: Results from the 1990 and 1992 Academic Library Surveys
Description: The Academic Library Survey (ALS), conducted periodically by NCES and first administered in 1966, was designed to provide concise information on library resources, services, and expenditures for the entire population of academic libraries in the U.S. The ALS dataset is still evolving. This report is the first of its kind to compare ALS data over time and to make use of the Carnegie institutional classification system to group academic libraries into useful categories.
