A new report for Primary Research.
The Survey of Library & Museum Archival Equipment & Supplies Purchasing Practices
This report looks closely at how academic, public and special libraries, museums and archives purchase archival equipment and supplies. The 170 page report helps these institutions and their suppliers to answer questions such as: how much do libraries and museums spend on archival equipment and supplies? What kinds of equipment do they buy and in what quantities? Where does funding come from? Which vendors do they use for what type of services? When do they outsource? Which firms supply digitization equipment or preservation supplies? How do they negotiate discounts and what are their needs in the near future?
