The 2015-16 ARL Library Investment Index indicates data provided by 114 colleges and universities based on dollars spent for total library expenditures, salaries and wages of professional staff, library materials expenditures, and the number of professional and support staff.

“Our new ranking signifies not only strong growth in our collections of research materials and services, but also demonstrates the exceptional support granted to us by the University, and particularly the Office of the Provost,” said Lisa German, dean of University Libraries and Elizabeth D. Rockwell chair. “With your support, we are able to advance student success, knowledge creation and preservation, and globally competitive research.”
