Ithaka S+R US Library Survey 2013


In the Ithaka S+R US Library Survey 2013 report we examine how the leaders of academic libraries are approaching systemic changes in their environment and the opportunities and constraints they face in leading their organizations. While exploring key topics covered in our 2010 survey of library directors, such as strategic planning, collecting practices, and library services, in 2013 we also introduced a new emphasis on organizational dynamics, leadership issues, and undergraduate services. The 2013 Ithaka S+R Library Survey was sent via email to library deans and directors at four-year colleges and universities in the United States during the Fall of 2013. We received 499 responses, an overall response rate of 33%.
