How does the University of Denver Libraries’ collection compare to other academic libraries?

Compared to other similar institutions, the University Libraries has a strong collection, and it receives substantial support from the University.  We can compare our academic library to other academic libraries using the National Center for Education Statistics tool at http://nces.ed.gov/surveys/libraries/compare/.  The e-book collection is particularly strong.  The average number of e-books found at Carnegie Doctoral Extensive Research Universities is 386,558, while the University of Denver provides access to 4.5 times that amount with over 1,780,000 e-books.  The University holds more physical materials than the libraries at American University, Brandeis University, Carnegie Mellon University, Colorado State University, Lehigh University, or Marquette University.
