1.a Volumes held June 30, 2009 revised to 8,184,941. Adjustment (increase) reflects retrospective barcoding and additional e-books. The
increase in the number of e-books reflects both the availability of new titles, and mostly, an increase in the availability of online records
for previously held collections. The e-book count may include some duplication between e-book packages.
1.b.i Print only. Volume counts are online counts. The volumes added new count may be somewhat high as not all barcoding done
retrospectively can be removed.
2 The decrease reflects the de-duplication of e-books with print. The e-book count may include some duplication between e-book
5 Estimate only. The deduplication of print with electronic was based on a sample done in previous years. 26% of this deduplicated
count was estimated to be print. 10,500 of the e-titles were bibliographically coded as ceased. This count excludes titles from 2 Law
aggregators that do not have individual records in the online catalog (as they are only available to Law users) that have been included in
the past few years. The print portion of the 2008-2009 counts was low as the count of titles coded as currently received - but for which no
issues were received in the past 3 years - was mistakenly subtracted twice. The increase in the e-title count is due to the availability of
new titles, and, more significantly, the availability of online records for previously purchased or licensed collections.
7 Count is no longer kept up to date. The last count (in 2007-2008) was 8,521,365.
9 Excludes any computer files that are not barcoded and/or that accompany other formats.
