IPEDS Academy Library Survey

Reporting date: June 30, 2024

The Academic Libraries (AL) component of the Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System (IPEDS) Survey requires academic libraries to report data from their library consortia. NC LIVE provides using the following information to incorporate into your library's holdings and circulation data for NC LIVE-provided resources for the fiscal year ending June 30, 2024.

These numbers may vary from the general collection numbers, depending on the definitions from the IPEDS Academic Library Survey. NC LIVE has used the definitions provided by IPEDS to determine which of our collections should be included in each count.
