ARL Statistical Survey

Guide for Question 1, 2, 18, 19, and 20 of the Association of Research Libraries Statistical Survey typically due mid January

ARL Survey for Collections Question 1 is made up of five different sources. In the ARL_Statistical_Survey-FY20xx Excel file, you'll see two shades of blue lines for this question. The lighter blue lines are formulas that add the Physical Titles and Electronic Titles separately. The darker blue line is a formula adding together those physical and electronic titles sums. It is the dark blue line that will be reported to ARL as our answer for question 1.
