Summary

Data compiled from the 113 research libraries that were members of the Association of Research Libraries during the 1980-81 academic year display trends that have been emerging since the early 1970s: increasing expenditures, with a greater proportion of expenditures allocated to serials; decreasing numbers of volumes added each year, and little or no increase in overall staff size. A more detailed examination of these trends is provided by the analysis of data from 90 ARL university libraries for the years 1975-76 through 1980-81. Ratios between selected variables were calculated for each library and the media ratios examined for each year. Data and analyses included in this report include selected variables; microform holdings; Ph.D. and enrollment statistics; the ARL Library Index; summary of rank order tables; and rank order tables for volumes in library, volumes added (gross), microform holdings, current serials, professional staff, nonprofessional staff, total staff, materials expenditures, materials and binding expenditures, salaries and wages expenditures, total operating expenditure, total items loaned, total items borrowed, and current serials expenditures. A copy of the ARL Statistics Questionnaire is included. (RBF)
