To identify whether a statistical relationship existed between librarians and student completion at two-year colleges from 1996 to 2012, a longitudinal, quantitative nonexperimental correlational research design was used. Data from the Integrated Postsecondary Data System (IPEDS) and the Academic Libraries Survey (ALS) were analyzed using standard statistical methods and data visualization. Results were positive for female completers, negative over varying years for male completers, and positive for many years for all completers. Additionally, positive relationships were found between institutional total operating expenses and completion and between librarians and institutional full-time equivalent (FTE) staff.
