6 The Biomedical Library expenditures have decreased between 2010–11 and 2011–12 for the following
reasons: Employee benefit expense was included in the 2010–11 total expenditures but not in the
2011–12 total expenditures. There was a change in how the UC system recharges for electronic library
materials (chiefly serials) were processed so now most Biomedical Library serials expenditures are
recorded in a central UCLA Library account instead of the Biomedical Library. The size of the PSRML
federal contract has been reduced and so expenditures on federal contracts are down, also reducing
the number of librarians. The state funded portion of the Biomedical Library History Division staff
is now reflected in the Special Collections department, which is not part of the Biomedical Library
7 Reduction in library materials expenditures is due chiefly to the change in how the recharging of UC
wide electronic serials was handled in 2011–12 versus 2010–11, as well as being reduced due to the
retirement of the lead selecting librarian.
8 Reduction is due to a combination of employee benefit expense not being included in the 2011–12
expenditures but being included in the 2010–11 expenditures, as well as to a reduction in FTE.
Questions 23–29 are reported on the Main Library’s statistics.
