Description
  • Abstract

    The Higher Education General Information Survey (HEGIS) series was designed to provide comprehensive information on various aspects of postsecondary education in the United States and its territories (American Samoa, Guam, Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, and the Marshall Islands) and Department of Defense schools outside of the United States. Data are available for both public and private two-year and four-year institutions. The HEGIS College and University Libraries component for 1970-1971/1971-1972 sought data on libraries in institutions of higher education. Key data elements, presented for up to 19 record types, include number of library collections and resources, physical facilities, number of positions for library staff, salary expenditures, number of hours of assistance and expenditures for wages of library staff, number of employees, level of employees' educational attainment, library operating expenditures and budget, funds received for library services, and developmental areas.

Collection Mode
  • (1) The HEGIS Record Layout file (Part 2) is an Excel worksheet of record layouts for all components of the HEGIS survey, including the 1970-1971/1971-1972 Libraries component. (2) This collection has not been processed by ICPSR staff. ICPSR is distributing the data and documentation for this collection in essentially the same form in which they were received. When appropriate, hardcopy documentation has been converted to machine-readable form and variables have been recoded to ensure respondents' anonymity. (3) The codebook and data collection instrument are provided as a Portable Document Format (PDF) file. The PDF file format was developed by Adobe Systems Incorporated and can be accessed using PDF reader software, such as the Adobe Acrobat reader. Information on how to obtain a copy of the Acrobat Reader is provided through the ICPSR Website on the Internet.
