4 This total includes 15,401 uncatalogued electronic serial items, which have not been de duplicated amongst themselves or against
the remaining 56,387 catalogued titles. This latter number breaks down as 28,969 serials which are available electronically and
27,418, which are available in print only. Given the manner in which we record our data, we cannot give these as subcategories of
purchased and not purchased, while still de duplicating on ISSN. The average percentage of catalogued titles without ISSNs, across
the libraries for which we report the data, is roughly 35%.

4 The total de duplicated count for MSU (including Main, Government Documents, and Law) is 72,815 titles. This figure is derived
from a de duplicated count provided by Serials Solutions (from 107,971 total serial holdings, print and electronic). Only titles that
are unique to a single database can be assigned to paid or unpaid; titles which are not unique to a single database are reflected in the
de duplicated total of 72,815, but are not included in the sub categories as it is not possible to assign these titles to paid or unpaid at
this time. The de duplicated count of titles present in more than one database is therefore only reflected as part of the aggregate total
31a Based, in part, on sampling.
