Collection Statistics

Emory ARL Statistics

Throughout the year the Emory libraries collect a wide range of statistical data which they regularly report to national and regional organizations such as the Association of Research Libraries.

This site has been designed to provide easy library staff access to current ARL data as well as to an archive of past information reported to such organizations. Data has been organized both by Emory library and by broad subject area, following the reporting system used by ARL.  This site is open to all library staff. Because of the confidentiality concerns, however, some sections may only be viewed in summary form.
