2 The large increase in Titles held June 30, 2010 is due to the large batch loads noted in question 1.a.
4 Historical figure is based on bibliographic count. Additions and withdrawals are 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.
5.a.ii The large drop in Print serials purchased is due to converting many print titles to online only.
8 Government documents not counted elsewhere is smaller than the number reported for 2008-2009 because of retrospective cataloging
32 Main and Law reference transactions figures included here are based on sampling. Health Sciences figures based on physical count.
