Information Today, Inc. Releases Study on Library Spending

By Theresa Cramer

From the press release:

One of the more surprising findings in the study was that despite reports that budget-strapped communities have been cutting library services to the bone, public libraries as a whole were actually outpacing academic and special libraries in spending increases. While some caution needs to be exercised in viewing these results, given the steady annual cuts many public libraries have been experiencing in the recent past, the survey found that a full 37% of public libraries actually increased budgets in 2010, with 30% projecting increases for 2011.
