8.c Decrease in student assistants FTE. [Camden Law Library]
8.c A large digitization project that employed many students ended during the course of the 2012 reporting
year. This reporting year, the library did not undertake any digitization projects with a resulting
decrease in the total number of students hired and student payroll paid. [Newark Law Library]
10 This includes the following: Regular full-time employees: 44.1% of $1,296,516 = $571,763; Wages for labor
(part-time reference): 7.3% of $18,071 = $1,319; Other compensation: 7.3% of $57,379 = $4,188; Half-time
employee: 44.1% of $19,690 = $8,684.
11 This is the main figure as described by the instructions. Past percentages have been an average figure
based on the total salaries and actual fringes paid. [Newark Law Library]
13.a During FY12–13, we hired three new librarians to replace two librarians who had resigned the year
before and to fill an available line from a librarian retirement two years before. [Camden Law Library]
13.c Available work-study awards dropped in amount from $4000 down to $2000 due to decreased
government funding. Further, fewer students qualified for the diminished awards, so fewer student
were in the work-study pool. In FY12, we hired 22 work-study students while for FY13 we only hired
11 student assistants. The 11 part-time student assistants (with their reduced awards) worked the same
number of hours as 2 FTEs during the FY12–13. [Camden Law Library]
16 Last year’s figure was based on total circulation figures, not those that were related solely to reference.
Regardless, there was a significant decrease in Reference Desk figures. [Newark Law Library]
17 We attribute the decrease in the number of circulations partially to the decrease in the number of new
students (1Ls) during the past FY 2012–2013. [Camden Law Library]
21 The increase in requests from other libraries to borrow our materials did not seem to follow any
particular pattern (i.e., the libraries were not requesting a particular document or even particular kind
of document). It is possible that because we promptly fill requests (or pass requests on to the next library
in the queue), our quick response time is earning us more requests; other libraries may be requesting
our materials more frequently because we will respond in a timely manner. [Camden Law Library]
22 Two teaching faculty increased their requests to borrow materials significantly in FY 2012–2013, and
our three new librarians began writing articles immediately upon hiring and were heavy users of
Interlibrary Loan services. [Camden Law Library]
22 Student journals did not request as many materials this reporting year as they did in the previous
reporting year. [Newark Law Library]
