​Academic Libraries (AL)


Survey Component Overview:

The purpose of the AL component of IPEDS is to collect information on library collections, library expenditures, and library services for libraries in degree-granting postsecondary institutions. The Academic Libraries component for IPEDS replaced the previous Academic Libraries Survey, which was collected from degree-granting postsecondary institutions every other year in odd-numbered years.

Data Collection Period:

  • December 11, 2019 – April 8, 2020 for IPEDS Keyholders.
  • December 11, 2019 – April 22, 2020 for IPEDS Coordinators
