This guide has been updated to reflect any changes in survey tools and processes for the upcoming 2020-2021 data year reporting cycle, including the new ACRL Library Benchmark platform.
This LibGuide includes documents and tutorials to support PALNI libraries that are reporting for the annual IPEDS, ACRL, ATS/ATLA and other national statistics surveys.
All PALNI libraries run OCLC WMS, with Report Designer and License Manager.
The Analytics Admin Team requests that all PALNI libraries participate in the ACRL survey. Libraries need not submit a complete survey, but may respond with a partial survey for the required IPEDS data points. Including your IPEDS data in the ACRL survey allows the Admin Team and PALNI staff to do internal analysis and benchmarking to support PALNI data-driven decision-making and assist member libraries with comparison analysis.
Need More Assistance? We are happy to work with PALNI library directors and staff via individualized consultations to help with gathering data, reporting data, retrospectively providing past data or corrections, and using survey data for analysis and benchmarking.
