3 We used a combination of both physical and bibliographic counts to respond to this question. The source of our information for
supplying volume counts has historically been a physical count created by aggregating annual incremental reports by library unit
managers. However, these last 2 years (2006–2008) e-books were added to the question, and we used a bibliographic count for these.
Counts for e-books acquired through collective purchase are generated by our system-wide cataloging division. Counts for e-books
acquired through independent campus-level purchase are derived from our local inventory managed by the Electronic Resources
Librarian through an Electronic Resource Finder (ERF).
4bi–4biv Our method for generating a total number for serials relies upon a review of our OPAC. We were able to de-duplicate holdings
for multiple print titles, and holdings in which we had both an open holding statement for electronic and print. We are unable to
distinguish paid for and free active titles with our current method of generating the data so we entered the totals in (4a) and (4b) and
left (4b) subtotals UA/NA.
1a Volumes held June 30, 2007 revised to 3,602,106.
1bi Previous reporting did not include e-books that are part of the collection and cataloged locally.
1bii Extensive weeding was conducted in the 2006–2007 reporting period.
4–4ai A revised methodology for counting purchased serial titles was used for the 2007–2008 reporting period.
4b–4biii A revised methodology for counting non-purchased serial titles was used for the 2007–2008 reporting period.
1a This figure was revised to 2,973,408. Per ARL instructions, this figure includes 195,487 e-books that were added during 2007–2008.
1a Volumes held June 30, 2007 revised to 8,282,525.
4 This figure is repeated from the previous year (2006–2007). Because of the process of identifying a process to dedupe and capture
data in compliance with the new definition and due to this transition we are publishing the same figure as last year (2006–2007).
UCLA has not yet determined accurate counts for subscription titles that are obtained without cost via the internet, since these titles
do not have order records in UCLA’s bibliographic database. Because there is a significant increase in these titles, UCLA is devoting
efforts to capturing this information in a systematic and reliable way for the next annual statistical report.
38 Number of full-time faculty has increased to 1,948.
4a The rationale for the significant difference in serials statistics for the University of California, Riverside Libraries for 2007–2008 is: a)
an increase in serial titles resulting from consortial co-investments; b) an increase in the number of government documents serial
titles that have been entered into our cataloging records.
Library branches included: Arts Library, Center for Library & Instructional Computing Services, International Relations & Pacific
Studies Library, Mandeville Special Collections Library, Science & Engineering Library, Scripps Institution of Oceanography
Library, Social Sciences & Humanities Library.
Biomedical Library and Medical Center Library are included in the ARL Survey for Health Sciences Libraries.
1 E-book figures are not cataloged into a specific library since they are not site specific. Their numbers are all reported on the Main
Library Survey, Geisel Library.
1a Volumes held June 30, 2007 revised to 3,125,499.
17 Increase in salaries is due to several high salaried positions created and filled, coupled with a reduction in turnover of positions.
17c Although student FTE decreased, actual expense increased due to the minimum wage increase, additional duty increases, and the
addition of a Student Security Unit.
28 Weekly public service hours extends to 168 during finals week each quarter when we do have a staffed library open 24 hours, 7 days
a week.
31 Includes 4,412 virtual reference transactions.
28 2006–2007’s figure multiplied the number of weekly public service hours times the number of service hours for each service point,
making it inaccurate. 2007–2008’s figure reflects the actual number of weekly public service hours.
Library branches included: the Mandel School of Applied Social Sciences- Harris Library.
