The Association of Research Libraries (ARL), the Association of College & Research Libraries (ACRL), and the American Library Association (ALA) have extended their Joint Advisory Task Force through August 31, 2022, to continue efforts to bring the Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System (IPEDS) Academic Libraries component up-to-date and in-line with current library practices.
The ACRL/ARL Joint Advisory Task Force will develop recommendations regarding definitional issues and responses to questions raised by the academic library community in the area of shared print and electronic collections. IPEDS accepted the task force’s previous recommendations and implemented them in the 2015, 2016, and 2019 survey cycles.
According to ARL executive director, Mary Lee Kennedy, there is wide recognition that the IPEDS Academic Libraries component will better reflect library collections and services in future years as a direct outcome of the work of the ACRL/ARL Joint Advisory Task Force’.
