*In spring 2014, DuraSpace commissioned The Bishoff Group to conduct a
survey of the digital collection management practices performed by academic
libraries* that are not members of the Association of Research Libraries
(ARL) in order to gain a better understanding of the status of their
current digital content creation, management, and preservation activities.

Respondents included 145 institutions across all types of academic
libraries comprising two- and four-year colleges, masters, and doctorate
granting universities.

The survey addressed institutional content, repositories, services, future
needs and plans, staff support, and the libraries' overall commitment to
digital preservation. This article reports on the results of the survey.
