Overview
Academic Libraries Overview
Welcome to the IPEDS Academic Libraries (AL) survey component. The purpose of the AL component of IPEDS is to
collect information on library collections, library expenditures, and library services for libraries in degree-granting
postsecondary institutions.


Recent changes

The Academic Libraries survey component is new to IPEDS for the 2014-15 collection cycle. The Academic Libraries
component for IPEDS replaced the previous Academic Libraries Survey, which was collected from degree-granting
postsecondary institutions every other year in odd-numbered years. The new Academic Libraries component is
mandatory and will be collected annually in the spring starting with the 2014-15 data collection cycle. Visit the
Academic Libraries Resource page for more information on reporting changes.


Data Reporting Reminders

Report all data for fiscal year (FY) 2014. Fiscal year 2014 is defined as the most recent 12-month period that ends

before October 1, 2014, that corresponds to the institution’s fiscal year.


Coverage:

A screening question in the Institutional Characteristics (IC) Header component determines the institutional level of
reporting for degree-granting institutions on the Academic Libraries component. If the total library expenditures = 0,
the institution will not submit the Academic Libraries component. If annual total library expenditures are > 0, the
institution will submit Section I of the Academic Libraries component. Institutions with total library expenditures
>$100,000 will report additional expenditures and interlibrary services information in Section II of the Academic
Libraries component.
