CAUL and CAVAL announce changes to the CAUL Statistics Services

Commencing 2022, CAVAL will no longer be facilitating, collating, and managing the annual university library statistics for CAUL. This marks the end of the cooperative partnership between the Council of Australian University Librarians Inc. (CAUL) and CAVAL Ltd. that goes back three decades to 1992 when CAVAL commenced managing the collection and compilation of statistical data for university libraries in Australia. The data was published annually as a Supplement of the Australian Academic and Research Libraries (AARL) journal for many years. Over the last 15 years, CAVAL has provided and maintained an online CAUL Statistics platform. This also includes the provision of a helpdesk created to provide help and assistance to statistics collection participants and website users. CAVAL also provided a liaison with the CAUL Statistics Advisory Committee to provide advice, commentary, and insights into the data elements and collection process.
