SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- The libraries at the University of Utah and Brigham Young University rate among some of the best in the nation.

That's according to a new survey by the Chronicle of Higher Education.

The national magazine ranked the U. of Utah library system 33rd out of 113 university research libraries that are members of the Association of Research Libraries. B-Y-U ranked 55th on the list.

Utah was 41st on the list a year ago. One of the reasons for the jump is Utah and two Nevada schools have formed a consortium with electronic books, cutting costs while adding volumes to the libraries' volumes.

Library officials say a high ranking on such lists can help attract good teachers and students.
