2 Volumes are undercounted. We are unable to estimate volumes in special collections and government
documents. Increase likely due to e-books. FY12 figure (4,094,341) reported to ARL was incorrect; included
e-serials which should not have been. Correct FY12 figure is 3,900,199.
4 Factors that contributed to increased e-book count: a) shift in our collections acquisitions policy that
favors more electronic materials; b) libraries copies of theses and dissertations are now all electronic; c) we
are reformatting and digitizing special collections.
6 FY12 figure (29,352,698) reported to ARL was incorrect; included double-counting the Tech Fee
expenditures on collections already included in the numbers reported for the expenditures on library
materials (Question 7). FY12 correct figure for Question 6 is 27,161,514.
7.a Funds were reallocated to cover the cumulative cost of inflation for ongoing commitments.
7.c Service fees are governed by our large vendor contracts, two of which increased this past year.
9 We did not need to add additional digitization funds this past year. FY12 figure (5,422,894) reported to
ARL was incorrect; included double-counting the Tech Fee expenditures on collections already included
in the numbers reported for the expenditures on Library materials (Question 7). Correct figure for FY12
for Question 9 is 3,231,710.
10 Fringe benefits include retirement, social security, medical insurance, and unemployment insurance.
