    A 1990 survey conducted by George Bobinski, dean of the School of    
    Information and Library Studies at the State University of New York at   
    Buffalo, found that 909 Carnegie structures were still in use as libraries.
    Bobinski also determined that 242 of the original buildings had been  
    demolished, 403 were being used for other purposes, such as  
    museums and office buildings, and the status of the remaining     
    125 buildings was unknown.
