15.a, 15.b In 2004‐05 CRL stopped early renewal of serial subscriptions for the dissertation exchanges. The

for 2005 appear to have decreased.
John Crerar Library is a central science library with a biomedical collection for health sciences;
many numbers are percentages as a result. Data for the ARL survey are matched as closely as
possible to data compiled and reported for the Association of Academic Health Sciences Librariesʹ
(AAHSL) Annual Statistics of Medical School Libraries in the United States and Canada. Volumes

when that option exists and continued refinement of our internal categorizations.
