25 Due to the opening of new Learning Commons floor, the library was given funding to do a technological refit of the entire floor
-including software packages, new computers, an assistive technology lab, smartboards, etc. This caused a significant increase in
computer hardware and software expenditures.
27 There was a significant increase in this number of FTE employees in the library due to the increase in student assistant employment, see
the footnote for question 27.c for more information.
27.c This number increased due to the opening of a new Learning Commons with a student-heavy staffing model, a library-provided
tutoring program started, our security department increased its hires of student assistants and due, to budget issues, there was an
overall increase in Federal Work Study hiring.
28 As we opened a new Learning Commons on a completely remodeled floor, we moved away from a one desk model to a multi-service
point model. Also, we have increased outreach to residence halls, 24/7 VR, and services provided at off-campus locations to our
research facilities.
29 The library is physically closed for 34 hours a week. This number has increased due to the library expanding its hours to 24/5. This
accounts for our increase in public service hours.
31 On our in-house statistics forms, we changed the definition of presentation to include trainings offered to staff as well as library tours.
This has caused the number of presentations to go up slightly with the number of overall participants go down slightly.
32 We have seen an increase of reference transactions due to increased visibility on newly opened floor, newly offered concierge services,
as well as outreach to the resident halls.
35 The ILL Dept was short staffed during a substantial portion of the year, causing them to be able to fill fewer requests.
38 The budget crisis in the state of Florida has led to Florida State University to eliminate some fields of study as a cost saving measure.
Library branches included: The Estelle and Melvin Gelman Library, The Eckles Library, and Virginia Science and Technology Campus
Data from the Law and Health Sciences Library are also included in the figures reported.
1.a Volumes held June 30, 2009 revised to 2,267,666.
5 This fiscal year, by using our e-resource management system, we’ve identified and are counting a more complete set of journals. We
followed the procedures provided by ARL for using Serials Solutions data in counting e-journals.
5.b.i Since WRLC no longer purchases e-resources for the consortium out of central funds, this number is 0. All other consortially-acquired
resources are purchased by GLS via Lysrasis or NERL and are reflected in counts for currently purchased electronic journals.
5.b.ii This year, we’ve identified and are counting a broader range of resources.
8 In previous years only Federal documents were counted. This year we are counting all types of government documents.
13 Bought a large collection in 2008-2009. Returned to normal buying practices this year.
