The 2013 cycle of the Library Survey finds some important changes in academic libraries over the past three years. Library directors’ attitudes toward print collections are shifting, with respondents placing less emphasis on building library collections. Research support is changing, with many respondents reporting the deployment of innovative new services for faculty members despite some declines in the share who place high value on supporting faculty research. At the same time, more and more directors are embracing a strong role for their libraries in undergraduate teaching and information literacy education.
