    Abstract: The Academic Libraries Survey (ALS) provides the basic 
data needed to produce descriptive statistics for approximately 3,827 
academic libraries in the 2-year and 4-year postsecondary institutions 
of the 50 states, the District of Columbia, and the outlying areas of 
the United States. Collection of these data enables the nation to plan 
for the development and use of postsecondary education library 
resources. ALS has been a component of the Integrated Postsecondary 
Education Data System (IPEDS), but since 2000 it has been a separate 
biennial survey. The data are collected on the web and consist of 
information about library holdings, library staff, library services and 
usage, library technology, library budget and expenditures for 4300 
academic libraries in the U.S. The ALS questionnaire is being revised 
for the 2010 survey: One eligibility question and twelve item responses 
will be added and one item response will be dropped.
