4 While this data appears to show a significant increase for Auburn, our 2005 06 data was inadvertently under reported for serial
titles. The data for the current year is similar to data reported for 2004 05 and for previous years. The greatest discrepancy is for
4b (serials titles received but not purchased). Auburn reported 18,563 for this category in 2004-2005, but only 8,622 in 2005-2006.
Approximately 46% of the serials had ISSNs.
