Primary Research Group has published Trends in Photography Special Collections Management, 2013 Edition, ISBN 978-157440-246-9
The report profiles the efforts of nine special photography collections from the American Museum of Natural History, the Minneapolis Public Library, the National WWI Museum at Liberty Memorial, the Cleveland Museum of Art, the Indiana Historical Society, the State Archives of Florida, the Autry Collection, the University of Kentucky and the University of Montana.
The intent of the report is to examine closely how photographic collections are managed, discussing issues such as digitization, marketing, use of social media, cataloging and metadata, copyright and permissions, reproductions and licensing, revenue development, costs and staffing, and other issues of interest to managers of large photo collections in museums, private industry, archives, colleges, historical societies and other venues.
Some highlights of the report include:
Barbara Mathé, Museum Archivist and Head of Library Special Collections discusses the development of the Museum's photography collection, including the sticky issue of the use of images of indigenous cultures as well as the more mundane issues of staffing, licensing, cataloging, and metadata, among other issues.
Barbara Tannenbaum, the Curator of Photography for the Cleveland Museum of Art, discusses the Collection's many partnerships with other institutions, as well as licensing, outreach and marketing, and preservation, among other issues.
Steve Haller, the Senior Director of the Collections and Library at the Indiana Historical Society, discusses how his organization manages an astounding 1.7 million photographs, as well as other issues such as fulfillment of demand for prints, funding and digitization.
Jody Norman, the Archives Supervisor, and Adam Watson, the Photographic and Film Archivist, discuss the enormously popular Florida Memory Project, as well as a myriad of management and development issues.
Deirdre Scaggs, Associate Dean of Special Collections at the University of Kentucky, discuss the use of blogs and image sharing sites in driving traffic to collections, as well as a host of other issues in acquisitions, digitization and general management.

How much do libraries spend in supporting open source solutions in both funding and staff time? How much does the use of open source software save them? What areas of library operations have been most impacted by open source?  How many open source solutions are libraries of different size staffs and different types using? How many have started with an open source solutions in a given area and then abandoned it? How do libraries evaluate their own success or failure with open source?  What are the open source solutions they are most anxious to try in the future? Which outside services do they recommend to support open source alternatives? Which information sources about open source do they find most useful?
Just a few of the study's major findings include:

  *   Nearly 91% of respondents said that they had never experienced any downtime using open source email alternatives.

Primary Research Group has published Academic Library Website Benchmarks, 2013 Edition, ISBN 978-157440- 221-6.

The 160+ page study shows how academic libraries are re-shaping their websites.  The study is based on a survey of 56 academic library web staffs with data broken out by size and type of institution and other criteria.  The study gives exhaustive data about academic library preferences in areas such as: use of mashups, library social media site policy, web staff size, role of the college and library it staff, range of individuals allowed to enter content, content policy, website branding, website budgets, plans for upgrades and overhauls, staff time devoted to various website maintenance and development tasks, use of blogs, listservs, rss feeds, and email newsletters, content management system development and satisfaction levels, plans for federated search, search box presentation strategy, use of cascading style sheets, ease of use of the site including ease of positioning videos and tables, entering same content to multiple locations, checking the functionality of page links, reporting features, and restricting site access.

Other issues covered include the use of freelancers and consultants, preferences for programming languages, how the script development workload is divided among the staff and others, relations with the college administration and the college web staff, use of social bookmarking tools and much more.

Just a few of the report's many findings are that:

  *   61.4 percent of libraries in the sample have their own webmasters (or web staffs) that are separate from the college website staff.
  *   Library web staffs account for a mean of more than 80% of the total man hours required to run the academic library web site. College-wide web or IT staff account for a mean of 14.7 percent of the work done on, while an average of just 2.25 percent of total man hours is attributed to consultants, outsourced service providers, and other third parties.
  *   Open-source content management alternatives were extremely popular among the largest colleges in the sample (those with 15,000 or more students), as 53.85 percent of these participants adapted such a system.
  *   Just 22.81 percent of survey participants find it to be "relatively easy" to position and manipulate videos within the website's CMS.
  *   A mean of 31.26 percent of the routine content updates for the library website are done through dynamic, database-driven web pages rather than through static pages.
  *   51% of the libraries in the sample maintain a library presence on YouTube.
  *   No community college rated it "very easy" to enter tabular data into the college website, while 21.05 percent of 4-year and MA-granting colleges thought it "very easy" to do so.

The report is available from Primary Research Group or from major books distributors for $95.00.

Primary Research Group has published The Survey of Academic Library Practices in Staging Special Events, ISBN 978-157440-220-9.

This 140-page study looks closely at how academic libraries stage special events such as fundraisers, readings, concerts, theatrical and dance performances, lectures, workshops and other special events.  The study gives detailed data on the number and type of special events, the departments involved in their staging, their cost and, when applicable, their revenues, levels of attendance, and overall effectiveness in advancing the interests of the library in the academic and broader community.

 The study includes specific information on staffing special events, special events food service, parking and the efforts made to market special events. In addition, survey participants discuss their most effective events, and their plans for the future.  The study provides a unique quantitative and qualitative record of the impact of library special events, and their results in terms of attendance, revenues, and other metrics.  Data is broken out by size and type of college (ie research university, community college, etc), the average annual tuition rate of the college, for public and private colleges, and by the number of special events staged by the library each year.
