1 This year, CUL switched from a manual to an online physical volume count. This new count is not directly comparable to
previous years’ counts as it excludes any volumes that have not been bar coded, or that accompany non-volume format items,
but includes locally held volumes stored digitally. The count also includes some e-book growth, and the addition of a large
number of catalog records for e-books already owned/subscribed. E-book count includes some duplication between e-book
packages yet to be determined.
1.b This figure may be high due to the decision to switch to online counts during the fiscal year. It is likely that not all bar coding
done retrospectively was removed. Includes a few Law e-books cataloged manually.
2 The e-book count included has not been deduplicated with the print count. The e-book count also includes some duplication
between e-book packages yet to be determined. We are currently looking into how deduplication might be accomplished.
5 Estimate only. 27.6% of the titles were estimated to be print. 9,000 of the e-titles were estimated to be non-current. This count
includes two Law aggregators that do not have individual records in the online catalog as they are only available to Law
users. Deduping was done through estimates, some of which were based on sampling. Following ABA definitions, the Law
print count includes non-serial continuations. The decrease in the print count is due to cancellations to favor electronic
format over print, and a more precise counting methodology. The increase in the e-title count is due to both the availability
of new titles, and, mostly, to an increase in the availability of online records for previously purchased or licensed titles.
7 Starting with 2008-2009, microform counts will no longer be kept up to date; reporting will be at the 2007-2008 level. The
change reflects rounding only.
9 Decrease reflects a change from a manual to an online count that excludes any computer files that accompany other formats,
and/or that are not bar coded.
10 Figure is in cubic feet.
11 Starting with 2008-2009, map counts will no longer be kept up to date; reporting will be at the 2007-2008 level. The change
reflects rounding only.
12 Starting with 2008-2009, graphics counts will no longer be kept up to date; reporting will be at the 2007-2008 level. The
change reflects rounding only.
13 Decrease reflects a change from a manual to an online count. Excludes any sound recordings that are not bar coded and/or
that accompany other formats.
14 Starting with 2008-2009, motion picture counts will no longer be kept up to date; reporting will be at the 2007-2008 level.
Video and DVD counts are now collected online, not manually.
16.d This year, this figure includes expenditures for integrating resources as well as shipping costs not included in 16a-c.
Previously, expenditures for items coded as integrating resources were reported in 16a. Per cataloging rules, more and more
items will be cataloged or recataloged (from other formats including monographs and serials) as integrating resources.
These expenditures currently include those for such items as reference databases, resource aggregators (including those
with a mix of formats), etc.
18.a Includes expenditures for librarians and archivists only.
21 Expenditures include some in-year returns on reserves mandated due to the recession.
23 Includes an estimate for the amount spent on electronic subscriptions for large publishers providing both print and
electronic whose payment records are coded as print only.
26 In 2008-2009, payment was made for 2007-2008 and 2008-2009 for ILLiad.
27 Does not include staff in positions that were temporarily vacant. Includes professional, support, and student staff on grants
