Abstract

The use of numeric data has historical significance in the research of many academic disciplines, but today it is burgeoning. Responses from academic business librarians to a 33-item questionnaire are the basis for this study that investigates the interactions between academic business libraries and other local units supplying numeric data services. In addition to observations about physical location and administrative oversight, special attention is given to the coordination and promotion of data services between the business library and research data service centers. This pilot study reveals some interesting and surprising trends confronting academic libraries and research data centers, while opening new avenues for further research.
