Corporate Library Benchmarks is a special report based on a survey of 65 corporate and other business libraries, mostly drawn from leading American and Canadian corporations. The mean 1999 sale of the companies in the sample was $7.1 billion. Although the sample focuses primarily on major corporations, the sample also includes data from libraries for leading MBA programs, major business trade association libraries and business regulatory agency libraries. This is Primary Research Group's third major report on corporate libraries. The report provides a complete analysis of how corporate library spending and management practices have changed over the years. Data is broken out specifically for financial institutions, major consulting firms, manufacturers and utilities, high tech firms, and media companies. The report gives critical benchmarking data for corporate libraries. More than 250 tables of data or graphs, many broken out by type of industry and company size, give benchmarking and trend data.
Chapter focuses on Audio-Visual Materials including mean and median spending on audio-visual materials in 2000 and percentage of libraries that offer electronic reserves services to support training, course work or any other organizational objectives.
