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 expenses, and library services for libraries in degree-granting
postsecondary institutions.


Recent changes

There are a few changes to the 2016-17 Academic Libraries component from the 2015-16 collection. Visit the

Academic Libraries Resource page for a list of the changes and additional reporting resources.


Data Reporting Reminders

Report all data for fiscal year (FY) 2016. Fiscal year 2016 is defined as the most recent 12-month period that ends

before October 1, 2016, that corresponds to the institution’s fiscal year.


Coverage:

Include data for the main or central academic library and all branch and independent libraries that were open all or
part of the fiscal year 2016. Branch and independent libraries are defined as auxiliary library service outlets with
quarters separate from the central library that houses the basic collection. The central library administers the
branches. Libraries on branch campuses that have separate IPEDS unit identification numbers are reported as
separate libraries.
