1 This is substantially larger increase in titles held than reported in previous years for the Law Library. It
includes the addition of bibliographic records for HeinOnline electronic collections, Gale’s Making of
Modern Law electronic collections, LLMC Digital collections and other electronic resources cataloged at
the individual title level which were imported into our catalog during the FY2013 reporting period (and
as reflected in Question 4 “Electronic Books”).
2 This is a substantial increase in the number of volumes held for the Law Library. It includes the addition
of bibliographic records for HeinOnline electronic collections, Gale’s Making of Modern Law electronic
collections, LLMC Digital collections and other electronic resources cataloged during the FY2013
reporting period [and as reflected in Question 4 “Electronic Books”]. The Law Library also has access to
a number of electronic resources that are counted only in the Main Library’s statistics.

in calculating its total volume count. Print volume count is performed physically while electronic
resources are counted through bibliographic extraction.

applied to salaries charged to Federal awards. Some of the major fringe benefit cost categories are:
Health Insurance, Retirement, FICA/Medicare, Tuition Remission, Workman’s Compensation and
Unemployment Insurance. Fringe benefit expenses also include short/long term disability, life
insurance, temporary shutdown, staff/faculty assistance, child/elder care, employee physicals, training

MYCLP, PACER, Supreme Court Insider, and WorldTradeLaw.

Wilson, LegalTrac, LLMC Digital, Max Planck, RIA, and vLex.
21, 22 The number of filled or lending requests vary by the collection needs of the requesting libraries and
naturally fluctuates from year to year based on faculty research needs. For 2013, the fluctuations also
are attributable to the Library’s participation in UBorrow, a direct ILL borrowing/lending system of the
