5.b.iii The decrease is due to UNL Libraries’ preference for electronic materials.
14 UNL Libraries increased resources towards purchasing items frequently requested via ILL. The bulk of these materials are
audiovisual materials; which are highly in demand.
16.d Library material expenditures have been largely devoted to electronic serials. We expect this trend to continue.
17 The move towards electronic materials has diminished the need to bind materials. In addition, the use of shrink wrap has
reduced the need to bind materials as well.
22 UNL Libraries is intentionally refraining from purchasing these types of resources as part of the Serials Review Process,
which explains the decrease from the 2007-2008 figure.
23 UNL Libraries renewed a number of large databases licenses this year. These big deals typically occur every three years.
24.a-24.b The Libraries decreased the amounts that were paid into the OCLC accounts.
26 This decrease is largely due to the decrease in shipping costs as well as UNL Libraries switching shipping companies.
31 This decrease may be due to the fact that many liaison librarians have switched subject areas. This decrease appears to be a
trend for UNL Libraries.
32 In May of 2009, UNL Libraries moved the QuestionPoint (collaborative virtual reference service) box to the front page of the
newly designed Library website.
