Primary Research Group has published Library Use of LibGuides, ISBN 978-157440-257-5
The study explores how many LibGuides libraries are making, the rate of growth in Lib Guide creation, and how extensively LibGuides are used.  The report also covers the estimated time it takes to create a LibGuide and its impact on library productivity.  The study furnishes insights on the number of librarians in an organization who use LibGuides, the support that they receive, and the marketing of LibGuides to faculty and students, among many other issues.  The study also points out the most admired LibGuides, the most used, and gives hard data on the number of LibGuides from institutions other than their own that libraries are using.  The study helps its readers to answer questions such as: how many libraries are using LibGuides as their library website? What are library plans for LibGuides in the future? Have libraries considered alternatives to LibGuides? How satisfied are libraries with LibGuides? What kinds of LibGuides are libraries developing and how are they encour!
 aging students and faculty to use them?
Just a few of the study’s main findings are that:
•       The growth rate over the past year in the stock of LibGuides for the private colleges in the sample was an astounding 63%.
•       College libraries with a budget in excess of $3 million maintained a mean of 109 LibGuides.
•       42.11% of the libraries sampled have one or more individuals whose primary job it is to create LibGuides or other kinds of research guides.
•       Only 3.51% of the libraries sampled have measured or studied how much staff time it takes to develop a typical LibGuide.
•       31.58% of the libraries offer courses, seminars, or otherwise provide formal training in use of LibGuides to library staff.
