9 Number of physical units may include accompanying material.
11 Number of physical units may include accompanying material. Geology Library: A Geology retrocon project added 2,088 bibliographic
records for US Geological Survey maps transferred from the Map Library. Geology staff processed, barcoded and added 2,063 maps.
This total includes 25 new maps and 2,063 maps from the retrocon transfer project. As the remaining maps associated with the retrocon
project are barcoded, they will be added to the map holdings. In addition, this number still excludes a significant number of transferred
maps for which records have yet to be added. As records are added and maps processed, they will be included in the statistics.
18, 21 The campus education library, formerly known as the CIMC, merged with two other units at the start of 2008-2009. The library’s new
name is MERIT (Media, Education Resources & Information Technology). MERIT now provides media development, information
technology and education library resources for the UW-Madison School of Education. More money has been transferred to MERIT
Library’s budget to support new full-time positions, as well as the support of central IT service functions (which had previously been in
another budget line).
34 The increase in circulation transactions is attributed in part to the practice of creating a ‘local record’ when materials are received from
other libraries via inter-library loan. While lending materials to other libraries has decreased over the years, borrowing has increased,
consequently this trend impacts the processing of materials through circulation services.
