ACRL Board of Directors approved the current ACRL Standards for Libraries in Higher Education in June 2004. In 2009, then-ACRL President Lori Goetsch charged a task force to review and revise these important standards.

To inform their work, the task force surveyed academic library directors in spring 2010 on their use of, and need for, the standards. This report is a snapshot of the results.
