16 Percent changes in excess of -10% over the 2008-2009 figures for the sub parts of question 16 are due to the weeding work we have
done in 2009-2010 in our physical collections. These decreases resulted in the decrease in Total Library Materials Expenditures overall.
16-26 Expenditures as reported in Canadian dollars: (16a) $2,137,829; (16b) $10,187,927; (16c) $120,135; (16d) $22,302; (16) $12,468,193; (17) $109,470;

1.b, 1.b.i UNL Libraries is purchasing less content due to budget reductions and trends in collection building.
1.b.ii Due to space constraints and collection management practices, UNL Libraries is engaging in a number of weeding projects to regain
space to prepare for the transition to building an increasingly printless collection, particularly in the sciences.
3, 16.a The significant increase in monographs due to the fact that in 2008-2009, UNL Libraries switched approval plan vendors and that
resulted in atypically low amount of monograph purchases. Therefore, the numbers reported for 2009-2010 were typical and will not
likely fluctuate to the same degree.
5.b The increase is due to the fact that UNL Libraries was not able to calculate the amount of “freely accessible” serial titles currently
received but not purchased (question 5.b.ii) in 2008-2009. Now we are able to gather such statistics.
7 UNL Libraries is divesting in microfilm and continue to weed such collections as needed.
