1.a Volumes held June 30, 2009 revised to 10,610,487 volumes, which includes 10,259,005 volumes from the Main Library. This revision
includes 447,687 e-books and 683,749 digitizations of volumes available full text that were added to the HathiTrust digital repository in
2009-2010 and which are accessible through our catalog.
1.b This number includes 111,801 physical volumes and as well as 96,205 e-books added during the year.
2 Titles held includes titles with at least one HathiTrust full view item.
3 This number includes 96,205 e-books added during the year.
5 The way we keep our records prevents us from being able to break down our serials into these categories while still deduping on ISSN.
Cataloged serials with ISSNs have been deduplicated within and across libraries. The reported figure also includes 25,716 cataloged
serials without ISSNs and 13,152 serials which have not been cataloged; neither of these categories has been deduplicated.
7 We no longer count microform by physical unit. Our most recent count for the University Library by that method was 8,445,189
reported in 2006-2007. This number remains reasonably accurate as we acquire very little material in this form anymore and we do not
withdraw any of it.
16.c Includes a one-time $300,000 purchase of a manuscript collection at auction where we raised extra funds just for that purpose.
18 The staff of the Digital Media Commons and the University Press are now part of the University Library.
20, 21 The expenditures of the Digital Media Commons and the University Press are now included.
27 The staff of the Digital Media Commons and the University Press are now part of the University Library. Established AUL for
Publishing and the Press reports to the AUL (not the Dean of Libraries) which says something about the degree of operational
integration. The Press is being integrated into our wider publishing enterprise, as well as into the library more generally. UM Press
staff are considered to be library staff, are serving on library committees, and are collaborating on projects with staff from other library
departments. Publishing is considered to be one of the primary areas of library activity now and going forward, and not something
done on the side. Administrative operations of the Press have already been absorbed into the Library (e.g. Human Resources, Finance
and Facilities Management).
Library branches included: Biomedical & Physical Sciences; Business; Dubai; Engineering; Gull Lake; Mathematics; Veterinary
Data from the Law Library are also included in the figures reported.
1.a Volumes held June 30, 2009 revised to 5,392,854. The increase is primarily due to the inclusion of 160,964 LexisNexis Serial Set records
and 94,157 Serials Solutions records, a total of 255,121 records. The figure for the number of Serials Solutions e-books loaded this year
represents a significant increase over our 2008-2009 loads. Moreover, this is the first year that we have included records from the
LexisNexis Serial Set.
