(consortia) or as packages.
4biii The 2006–2007 survey included government documents, which the 2007–2008 survey “broke out” into a separate line. Also
enhancements to our records permitted us to include “children” records in the purchased line in 2007–2008 instead of in the
received, but not purchased line of 2006–2007.
