"Institutional library materials spending in North America is expected to rise a modest 1% in 2016, while spending in Europe is expected to decline by 0.1%, according to a survey released this week."


"The survey also found that institutional repositories (IR) are now widespread, with just over half (54%) of all institutes either owning or sharing ownership in an IR, and 44% of those with IR’s saying that their repository “was growing fast or very fast."
