29 March 2012. Two surveys conducted by Inside Higher Ed found that college and university chief academic officers/provosts and presidents alike consider library technology to be their most effective technological investment.
The 2011-12 Inside Higher Ed Survey of College and University Chief Academic Officers found that, on average, CAOs/provosts rated their institutions’ investment in library technology as 58.8 percent effective, a higher percentage than they gave to any other technology investment. Within that overall score, for-profit institutions were the most satisfied, with a ranking of 77.4 percent, followed by private doctoral programs at 64.9 percent. Private associates programs were the most dissatisfied at 42.9 percent, followed by private baccalaureate programs at 50 percent.
