This article reports on the findings of a survey on collection development and circulation practices of LP records in U.S. academic libraries conducted in September of 2007. Areas of special interest included the size of LP collections, identification of barriers to access, collection development practices, and digitization activities. The survey found that libraries have large LP collections, many libraries have large uncataloged collections, limited resources to manage these sound collections, and are faced with storage problems.
