15 The addition of more dual-degreed (J.D. + M.L.I.S.) resulted in more faculty outreach and more
opportunities for presentations to more students. The first-year Legal Research and Writing course was
redesigned to create more research class sessions in smaller groups, increasing the number of research
presentations. Over-enrollment in the spring Advanced Legal Research course resulted in a second
section being added. A new Foreign, Comparative and International Legal Research course was also
taught for the first time in the spring semester.

9 This increase was caused by two factors: 1) The operating expenses for the Student Journals were
moved into the Library in FY13, which increased our operating expenses by about $140,000. 2). Our FY13
operating expenses were artificially low because about $100,000 of one-time expenses were accidentally
paid in FY12 instead of FY13.
