Submit your data!




Regarding Special Collections 2018-19:

We continue to collect Special Collections data. Please provide the following key pieces of information regarding your special collections: expenditures (questions 6 to 9), staffing (questions 13a-c), and again this year please consider providing number of library presentations to groups and number of participants in group presentations (questions 14-15).  The Special Collections survey also requires answers to the following forced-choice questions: Q3, 5, 14a, 15a, and 16a. We are not collecting Special Collections data for some of the items to which these questions correspond. However, the system needs responses to the forced-choice questions so that you can submit your surveys. If a forced-choice question on the Special Collections survey is inapplicable, repeat the response that you chose for the Main Library survey.

We will leave it to your discretion to fill in additional variables if you think they are useful. 

If you have questions about how to complete the annual ARL Statistics survey, please email
