CALIFORNIA, DAVIS, cont.
32-33 The new library facility in Sacramento is now part of a medical education building, so is more convenient for the library's clientele.
Thus, more individuals are borrowing the materials.
34 In years prior to 2007–2008 requests were low because the electronic formats of journals did not show in SERHOLD for UC-Davis. We
had canceled the print versions in earlier years, but did not update SERHOLD to include the electronic formats.
36-42 This item is reported as an overall total for all libraries across campus on the Main Library Section.

4 This figure is repeated from the previous year (2006–2007). UCLA has not yet determined accurate counts for subscription titles that are
obtained without cost via the internet, since these titles do not have order records in UCLA’s bibliographic database. Because there is a
significant increase in these titles, UCLA is devoting efforts to capturing this information in a systematic and reliable way for the next
annual statistical report.
27 Included in the General Library count (see 2007–2008 ARL Statistics). The Medical Library has 1 service point and is open for 97 hours
weekly.

CHICAGO
John Crerar Library is a central science library with a biomedical collection for health sciences. Many numbers are percentages as a
result. Data for the ARL survey are matched as closely as possible to data compiled and reported for the Association of Academic
Health Sciences Libraries' (AAHSL) Annual Statistics of Medical School Libraries in the United States and Canada.
1b-1bi Number of volumes added during 2006–2007 was anomalously high. Current value (2007–2008) is close to the average reported over the
past five years.
4-4a More accurate data were available this year (2007–2008); it is likely that 2006–2007’s estimates were low.
12-13 Expenditures for these materials are centralized and cannot be disaggregated.
15-15b More accurate data collection was available during 2007–2008 that allowed better separation of health-science-only expenditures.
15c More accurate data collection was available for 2007–2008 that allowed better separation of health-science-only expenditures. It is not
possible to completely separate health science library expenditures from other science expenditures, and it is likely that this number
contains expenditures for non-health science materials.
18 Fringe benefits are included.
20 Significant differences in (15) account for variance in total collection expenditures.
23a-23b Expenditures for these materials are centralized and cannot be disaggregated.
34-35 More accurate reporting was available through ILLIAD interlibrary loan management system.

1a Volumes held 30 June 2007 revised to 304,892.
1bii The monograph collection was weeded prior to move.
4 Serials not reported separately from total university count.
16 This decrease reflects the purchase of fewer print journals and less binding when we have archival rights to an electronic journal title.
17 This decrease reflects a reorganization that separated what was formerly a combined Health Science Library (HSL) and IT organization.
The HSL is now integrated into the central library system administratively and operationally as it originally was until 1972.
19-20 This decrease reflects the reorganization mentioned in (17).
26 This decrease reflects a reorganization that separated what was formerly a combined HSL and IT organization. The HSL is now
integrated into the central library system administratively and operationally as it originally was until 1972.
31 This decrease reflects not providing chat reference services this year (2007–2008).
