CINCINATTI    
Excludes the Raymond Walters College and Clermont College libraries.    
4a.i It was too difficult to separate our e‑journals from the other jurisdictions within the university. We are reporting only our paper titles,
allowing the e‑journals to be counted in the “main” count.
COLUMBIA    
1a Volumes held June 30, 2006 revised to 892,389. Restated from 2005–2006 to include 21,811 e‑volumes.
4a.i Includes Hein Online and LLMC (de‑duped from paper total).
24 Includes expenditures for computer maintenance.    
28 Number included in Butler count (102 for Law Library only, 107 total for Columbia).
34 Filled requests provided to other libraries includes 4,888 from fee‑based service.
CORNELL    
1a Volumes held June 30, 2006 revised to 548,518. Change from ending figure for 2005–2006 reflects the fact that additional e‑books were
counted. E‑book counts are as of 10/2007.
1b.i Includes a small number of manually cataloged e‑books.
4 Estimate only. Divisions by paid/unpaid unavailable. 21% of the titles in this count were estimated to be print. 3,300 of these titles
were estimated to be non‑current e‑titles. This count was made particularly difficult by the fact that online records do not exist
for two of the Law Library’s largest e‑journal packages as they are not available beyond the Law School (these packages were not
counted in the past). For the largest aggregators, estimated percentages used to de‑dupe counts were percentages available for central
and Law online records combined. The central estimate to de‑dupe between print and e was arrived at through manually searching a
sample. Print counts include numbered and unnumbered monographic series and non‑serial continuations.
31 Decrease from 2005–2006 due in large part to a new sampling method instituted at CUL.
DUKE    
1b Volumes showed negative growth because a large number of duplicate titles were discarded in preparation for library renovation.
The renovated space resulted in a 20% loss of shelf space.
EMORY    
1b The Law Library has recently removed a large quantity of its volumes, primarily those whose content is now available online. For this
reason, this value is a negative figure, representing a reduction in size.
2 Fewer funds are available for purchase of new titles due to large amount of operational budget going toward continuation costs.
10 Three of eight maps have been discarded. The size of the item count is small, so a loss of three maps constitutes a large percentage
difference from 2005–2006.
13 A large quantity of videos were removed from collection due to loss of functional capacity.
