What Do Academic Library Directors Think About Their Libraries?

The Ithaka S+R US Library Survey 2013 polled hundreds of academic library administrators from institutions ranging from baccalaureate to doctorate level. Their responses to a series of questions and the interpretation of those responses make for illuminating reading. Key findings are on pages 6-8. Table 16 (p.33)  shows the almost universal commitment that library directors have to providing both reference instruction to undergraduates and proffering spaces in the library for group collaboration. On the other hand, this table also shows that only a third of this group considers hosting centers that promote teaching or undergraduate learning a priority.
