16 Percent changes in excess of +/-10% over the 2008-2009 figures for the sub parts of question 16 are due to the weeding
work we have done in 2009-2010 in our physical collections. These decreases resulted in the decrease in Total Library
Materials Expenditures overall.
16.a While much of our collection was weeded in 2009-2010, the law library had a major increase in monographs due to
a special budget that helps us raise the bar in our law monographs collection. Hence the increase in monographs
expenditures for the law library in 2009-2010.
