Primary Research Group Inc., has published the Survey of Law Library Plans
for the Print Materials Collection, 2022 Edition, ISBN 978-1-57440-703-7
This study presents data from 28 major law libraries about their plans for
their print materials collection. Data is broken out separately for
university, small law firm, large law firm, government and courthouse law
libraries, as well as for law libraries in Canada and in the United States,
and by library law library staff size. Law library directors from many
eminent law firms, schools and court and other government law libraries
comment on their plans for print subscriptions to journals, books,
directories, loose-leaf services, magazine and newspapers and other print
information vehicles. In addition to extensive commentary the report gives
detailed data on overall print budget spending, spending on particular
forms (books, journals, etc.) and data on the future of print separately
for primary and secondary legal information and non-legal information. The
study also looks at the impact of the pandemic on law library thinking and
planning for print materials.
Just a few of the 109-page report’s many findings are that:
• The Canadian law libraries in the sample vastly outspent the US ones on
• Libraries headed by individuals under age 60 spent far less on print
materials than those headed by individuals over age 60.
• Collection culling of print materials was slightly higher in the USA than
• For law school libraries, print materials accounted for 33.67% of the
print materials budget.
• Spending on print directories by the libraries sampled is expected to
fall by 15% in 2022.
