Corporate libraries provide vital information to the organization that are critical for decision-making. However, budget constraints and technology advances have had a sizable impact on corporate libraries within the biopharmaceutical industry.

Best Practices, LLC conducted this benchmarking to develop 2016 benchmarks for selected services and resources provided by libraries and information centers within the biopharmaceutical industry. Library and information center leaders can refer to this study to compare the scope, volume, cost, and delivery of library services at their companies with those at other organizations within the biopharmaceutical industry.

Study Snapshot

Best Practices, LLC engaged 17 leaders from 16 top biopharmaceutical companies through a benchmarking survey. More than half of the participants are at director level.

Key Findings

  • Average Cost: Benchmarked libraries spent an average of $8.7 million to provide services and resources during the most recently completed fiscal year.
  • People Allocation: Participants allocate the most FTE hours (average 23%) to electronic resource management, followed by reference and research at 20% and analytical & value added services at 19% respectively. Print-related services took only 3% of hours for benchmark participants. Several libraries indicated they no longer manage any print resources.
