This indicator relies primarily on data collected by the Association of Research Libraries (ARL). The association’s current membership includes 123 of North America’s largest research libraries, 107 of which are located in the United States and 16 in Canada. The ARL does not collect data relating library resources to the number of faculty, the other major users of library services.
