For Subscribers:

For many years ARL Statistics data have been available to the library community at large, first through the generous support of the University of Virginia, who supported the ARL Statistics Interactive edition from 1995 to 2010, and then through the ARL Statistics Analytics interface from March 15, 2010 to the present. In 2017, ARL Assessment Program Visioning Task Force was formed and asked to write recommendations for investment, maintenance, and disinvestment of programs, services, and tools as well as for new service areas and foci. During the process of redefining our service offerings and other assessment tools, it was decided that ARL Statistics Analytics should be retired. In keeping with this recommendation, ARL Statistics Analytics is being retired, and those interested in ARL data may purchase our serial publications in print and online formats. Current subscribers will have access to the product through the end of their subscription term. Subscribers may email to confirm subscription dates.
