Law Library Benchmarks, 2024-25

Primary Research Group, a New York-based publisher of research reports and surveys about higher education libraries, has published the report Law Library Benchmarks, 2024-25 ($168US):

"This report presents detailed data from 44 law libraries in the USA and Canada with data broken out separately by size of library and for law firm libraries, university law libraries, courthouse libraries, and all other."

"The study gives its readers detailed benchmarking data on current and future spending plans, with specific data sets for the overall budget, payroll, salaries, overall materials spending, online information, print information, reporters, legal and other scholarly journals, books (eBook and print) purchased from Amazon, books purchased from all other sources, subscription blogs, seminars and professional development and more.  The study also looks at spending plans on particular suppliers of legal information."

Among the major findings in the report:

  • Survey respondents were spending a mean of about 27% of their overall work time working from home.
  • Courthouse libraries in the sample accounted for almost all spending on print reporters.
  • More than 46% of university law librarians in the sample say that use of artificial intelligence has made them more productive.

Primary Research Group has published many law library-related surveys in the past.
