4 Historical is based on bibliographic count. Additions and withdraws based on physical count.
5 The serial count is by title, deduped, in a “cascading hierarchy”. (1)Paid (first electronic, then other formats) - A large
majority of the number of serial titles received via our consortium are paid via index figures based upon titles owned when
the relationships with the publishers began. Therefore, all are considered Paid. (2)The Not-Purchased titles in the Freely-
accessible and Government documents categories have very little overlap, because of the strategy used to construct the
serials list, and then were deduped; however, numbers here are only the titles that have not already been included in the
Paid category. (3)The Freely accessible titles include the titles marked as “free” from Serials Solutions, so long as those same
titles had not already been recorded among the paid Serials Solutions titles. (4)Some Government document titles are also
included in Paid Serials Solutions aggregates, and not-purchased Government document titles could also be included in the
free Serials Solutions titles.
8 Government documents not counted elsewhere is smaller than the number reported for 2007-2008 because of retrospective
cataloging of documents.
