Data from the Law Library and the Health Science Libraries are included in the figures reported.
1.a Volumes held June 30, 2009 revised to 4,126,174.
1.b, 1.b.i Added fewer items and did not buy as many titles.
3 Decrease is due to the purchase of fewer monographs in 2009-2010 than in 2008-2009
5.b Increase is due to better reporting from SFX and the inclusion of free or open access titles through SFX.
16 Decrease due to reduced purchases during the year. Several of the licensed resources had reductions in the cost of the package for the
calendar year 2010.
16.a 2009-2010 number is lower because of one-time purchases the 2008-2009.
18.b, 21 Expenditures for staffing are significantly less than 2008-2009 figures because of retirements and vacant positions not being filled. Staff
also experienced furloughs during part of the fiscal year, which reduced their base pay.
36 We received fewer requests for materials in 2009-2010.
Library branches included: Law Library, Health Sciences Library.
1.a Volumes held June 30, 2009 revised to 3,122,256.
21 Note: This is the first year that the UCI Law Library has been in operation and that Law Library Expenditures are included in the ARL
statistics. While the UCI Libraries experienced significant budget reductions during 2009-2010, this may not be apparent from the ARL
statistics given that substantial new campus expenditures were allocated for Law Library use.
CALIFORNIA, LOS ANGELES
Data from the Law and Biomedical Library are also included in the figures reported.
1.a Volumes held June 30, 2009 revised to 8,975,563.
2 In 2008-2009, counts for Volumes Held June 30, 2009 (question 1) and Titles Held (question 2) were equal. 2009-2010 figure reflects actual
count based on definition.
This is a significant increase from 2008-2009 due to our implementation of an electronic resource management system and our ability to
more accurately count titles.
16 Reduction in 2009-2010 library materials driven by Chancellorial budget reduction. Total available State of California funds for library
materials was reduced by about $2,000,000 in 2009-2010.
16.a Reduction is chiefly reflected in the monographs category ($1.3 million).
16.b Reduction impacted serials less dramatically, but still significantly (about $700,000).
18 Reduction in salary expenditures driven by the 2009-2010 budget reduction. Temporary salary reductions (furloughs) and very
restricted filling of open positions were among the key reasons for the reduction in the salary expenditures.
25 Less frequent replacement of computer workstations has been implemented to achieve cost savings to help satisfy 2009-2010 budget
28 Includes shelf-check out.
1.b.i Figure consists of newly cataloged e-books and cataloged collection back files for the print collections. We had not previously included
some of our e-books in our statistics because they had not been catalogued and we accelerated our cataloging program of unprocessed
print collections during 2010-2011. That accounts for the increase in numbers of Volumes Held (question 1).
1.b.ii Includes 6,962 e-books that UCR no longer accesses.
