Ratio of library staff to total personnel in a firm

    Hello,
    I am looking for information on typical ratios of library staff to total company staff. Can you point me to any articles or studies that show library staff size (ideally broken down by role and education) and also mention the size of the companies they serve? It would also be helpful to know how the library serves the company, since there are many things a corporate library can do, and not all corporate libraries do the same thing.
    Thanks in advance for your help,
    Ellen

    Primary Research Group conducts many studies specific to libraries of all types.  A long time ago, when I needed library-related benchmarks at a former job, I bought one of their studies.  You might reach out to them - I wouldn't be surprised if they have the data you need.
