2 Volume count includes 2,937,874 print volumes and 851,626 e-books.
6 The increase is largely due to two factors: 1) we received $1.3 million additional funding for the collections
budget, and 2) we assumed responsibility for a new unit.
7.c Includes: document delivery, binding, software, metadata, shelf-ready processing, open access
publishing, memberships, evaluations, digitization charges and shipping. Additional monies were added
to the Collections Budget this year.
8.b We assumed responsibility for a new unit and this added to the support staff numbers.
9 We assumed responsibility for a new unit; also some charges were covered under the new building for
the past two years but that is over now.

18 Consists of Consolidated Journal Report 1 and 1a—full-text article requests by Journal Title and from an
archive by journal title.
19 Consolidated Database Report 3. Decrease in search numbers against individual databases is because
users are running searches through a single search box on the front page of our library website instead of
through the native interface of some databases e.g. ProQuest.
20 We are not able to report the majority of this activity as this category within Scholarly Statistics does not
include usage of Summon, our unified Discovery Service. Vendors are not reporting significant numbers
after May 12, 2012 e.g., CSA Illumina reported zero federated searches after this date.
23 The number of fields where PhDs were offered increased slightly.
29 The Faculty of Education restructured their graduate programs in 2011 so the majority are now registered
as full-time students. The new structure is not conducive to completing programs as part-time students.

monograph purchases; other operating expenditures increased measurably.

during the year.
