The Survey of Academic In-Library Expenditure and Use of Instructional Technology

Some interesting statistics from the The Survey of Academic In-Library Expenditure and Use of Instructional Technology:

-- Mean spending in the past year for computers designed especially for library information literacy training or training computer centers was $15,773.

-- 21.62% of the libraries in the sample have purchased classroom response system technology. A third of doctoral & research universities have purchased this technology, as have a third of colleges with more than 15,000 students.

-- Close to 38% of the libraries in the sample use wikis in their library patron education efforts.

-- More than 27% of the libraries in the sample use social networking applications in their patron education efforts; private college libraries were more than twice as likely as public college libraries to do so.
