The ALLStAR Benchmarking Project is pleased to announce that the ALLStAR Official Survey (AOS) will be open for data entry from August 4, 2020 through January 15, 2021. Details about the AOS are available here.
The ALLStAR Project is pleased to share that the standard reports created from the responses to the ALLStAR Official Survey (AOS) for the 2018-19 Fiscal Year are now available to ALLStAR Users.
Overview of the 14 Standard Reports
These reports, which are accessible to all ALLStAR users, present the results of the AOS which includes questions from the ACRL, ARL, IPEDS, US News, and ABA legacy surveys. The 14 standard reports are the:
Who Can Access the Reports?
All ALLStAR users, regardless of membership tier, can access these standardized reports. In addition, ALLStAR subscribers can save, edit, manipulate, and create new reports using the AOS data.
When developing new reports, ALLStAR users have access to nearly 90 pre-set derived ratios to gain better insight into the data. These ratios cover many aspects of law libraries, including, but not limited to: facilities (e.g., number of seats available per FTE student), reference services (e.g., number of reference hours per reference transaction), collections (e.g., number of titles held per full-time student), personnel (e.g., number of professional FTE librarians per faculty), and expenditures (e.g., total expenditures per FTE student).
Tier 3 and Tier 4 subscribers can also create reports that incorporate other data stored in ALLStAR, including ABA Law School data from the Required Disclosures (e.g., LSAT, curriculum data).
