ARL Supplementary Statistics 2000-01 Published
The Association of Research Libraries is pleased to announce the
availability of the ARL Supplementary Statistics 2000-01, a compilation of
data from 119 ARL libraries. Since 1992, this publication has charted the
increasing expenditures of electronic materials in ARL member
After almost a decade of data collection, certain trends have become
clear. The average percentage of the library budget that is spent on
electronic materials was 16.25% in 2000-01, nearly five times as much as
in 1992-93. Almost $132 million was reported spent on electronic resources
in 2000-01, by 106 universities.
The vast majority of these expenditures increases have gone towards the
purchase of electronic serials and subscription services. Whereas only $11
million was reported spent in this area when it was first included on the
survey in 1994-95, 106 libraries reported electronic serials expenditures
totaling more than $117 million today.
