Abstract: The Higher Education General Information Survey (HEGIS) series was designed to provide comprehensive information on various aspects of postsecondary education in the United States and its territories (American Samoa, Guam, Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, and the Marshall Islands) and Department of Defense schools outside of the United States. Data is available for both public and private two-year and four-year institutions. The HEGIS College and University Libraries component for 1970-1971/1971-1972 sought data on libraries in institutions of higher education. Key data elements, presented for up to 19 record types, include number of library collections and resources, physical facilities, number of positions for library staff, salary expenditures, number of hours of assistance and expenditures for wages of library staff, number of employees, level of employees' educational attainment, library operating expenditures and budget, funds received for library services, and developmental areas.
