1 The figure probably overstates our true holdings. We installed a new integrated library system
halfway through the fiscal year, and have not yet mastered deduplication in reports, nor
finished cleaning up the data transferred from the old system.
4 The increase from the preceding year’s figure is partly due to a backlog of e-book records being
entered into our new ILS as part of the system transition.
7.c Credits recovered on collections support funds make the actual expenditure negative (-$12,254).
Because the reporting interface will not accept negative entries, these credits have been applied
to one-time library materials expenditures in this report. The actual figures are as follows: One-
time expenditures: $571,274; on-going expenditures: $6,288,664; collection support: -$12,254.
10 Includes OASI, retirement, and insurance.
11 Percentage varies by department and employment type.
19 The number of searches is inflated by an unknown amount due to the inclusion of certain

following platforms: Communication Institute for Online Scholarship, CQ Press, CRC Press
LLC, EBSCOhost, Gale, Greenwood Publishing Group, IBISWorld, IGI Global, Lexi-Comp,
OCLC, Ovid, Project MUSE, ProQuest, and Thomson Reuters.
