HARVARD, cont.
21 The overall reduction in library expenses can be attributed to lower endowment payouts for the sake of collections and staffing
reductions around the University but most significantly in the Harvard College Library.
27.a, 27.b Harvard experienced drastic changes to staffing in 2009-2010, but some of the variance here may be due to a change in the methodology
used to gather statistics.
Library branches included: University of Hawaii at Manoa Library (main) housed in two buildings: Hamilton Library, Sinclair Library.
Data from the Law and Health Sciences Library are also included in the figures reported.

1.a Volumes held June 30, 2009 revised to 2,598,704.
2 The newly appointed metadata cataloger, in consultation with OCLC, determined that there were 671,027 bibliographic records in the
Main Library and the Health Sciences Library which share an online catalog. The Law Library’s records were added to this number for
the overall count.
3 This figure includes monographic volumes purchased in the special collection, Moorland Spingarn Research Center (MSRC), as well as
the Main Library, Law and Health Sciences. The cataloger for the Main Library now catalogs books for MSRC.
7 Law added 2,398 units and the Main Library added 336 to the existing microforms.
10 Law Library increased its manuscripts and archives by 30 lin. ft. while MSRC added 25,997.
16 The Acquisitions Supervisor elected to participate in the Voluntary Separation and Incentive Retirement Program; therefore, he was not
present to oversee the complete order/procurement and payment process. There were records and processes that only he  could access.
Thus, some resources were dropped inadvertently. New staff persons will correct the problems in the next fiscal year.
18 This figure reflects the impact of the departure of salaried personnel who elected to participate in the Voluntary Separation and
Incentive Retirement Program on June 30, 2009. The staff size and, concomitantly, the salaries plummeted.
18.c The Financial Aid Office assigned 88 students to the Main Library complex.
21 The impact of the University’s Voluntary Separation and Incentive Retirement Program, which took effect June 30, 2009, was manifested
in 2009-2010 through reduced purchases and expenditures. That is, several significant selectors left the university and publications in
the affected disciplines were not acquired.
