20 Significant decrease in Other operating expenditures is due to concerted effort to expend gift funds in 2008-2009 on materials
acquisitions, furniture, and equipment.
16 We had less money to spend in 2009-2010 because of budget cuts.
20 In 2008-2009, we had a significant increase in “Other Operating Expenditures” due to a concerted effort to expend gift funds on
materials acquisitions, furniture, and equipment. The figure for 2010-2011 appears anomalous compared to the 2008-2009 figure
because these funds were not available in 2009-2010. Moreover, we also had less money to spend in 2009-2010 because of budget cuts.
21 Budget cuts caused decreases in all components of question 21. (Most notably, question 20 decreased by more than 75%.) The cumulative
effect of these cuts resulted in a decrease in total library expenditures overall for 2010-2011.
22 Significant increase in One-time electronic resource purchases is due to a conscious decision to purchase more e-books in 2009-2010.
28 In 2009-2010, the Physical Sciences Reading Room closed.
29 In 2009-2010, Friday and Saturday evening open hours were cut, closing at 8:00 pm instead of 10:00 pm.
30 Increase in Number of library presentations to groups is due to more librarians offering orientation sessions to individual departments
and colleges, as well as teaching multiple sessions of course presentations to the same group of students. Instruction data from other
library units, such as Special Collections, are also newly included.
40-43 Figures reported for 2009-2010 are accurately pulled from Fall 2009 enrollment data. However, in reporting enrollment figures for Fall
2008 last year, Institutional Research accidentally provided Fall 2009 figures. Correct Fall 2008 figures are: 40. Full-time students: 23,502;
41. Part-time students: 3,354; 42. Full-time graduate students: 3,109; and 43. Part-time graduate students: 2,140.
Library branches included: Milton S Eisenhower Library, Welch Medical Library, SAIS Mason Library, Institute of the History of
Medicine, SAIS Bologna Center, Arthur Friedheim Library.
