The 2011 environmental scan of academic libraries is the product of a two year effort by ACRL’s Research Planning and Review Committee. This has been a two phase project with the first phase being the development of the Top Trends in Academic Libraries published in College and Research Libraries News. This effort has expanded into this document. In addition to an extensive literature review, the association membership was surveyed. This document is a scan of the environment and is not an exhaustive examination of every aspect of librarianship.
