The Library Resource Guide Benchmark Studies on 2016 Library Spending Plans

According to new research conducted by the Library Resource Guide (LRG) in conjunction with Unisphere Research, a division of Information Today, Inc. (ITI), library budgets gained strength as the economy improved in recent years. Areas seeing increased investment include staffing and computer equipment. The decline in print acquisitions has leveled off, while ebook adoption has peaked and appears to be slipping.

The results of this new research have been segmented into an overarching Benchmark Study and three stand-alone comparative spending reports by library type: the Academic Libraries Edition; the Community Public Libraries Edition; and the Special Libraries Edition. The reports are designed to provide insight into library budget trends and to help libraries benchmark their spending against their peer group. These four reports are all available now for just $159 each as a PDF download.
