Question Number Footnote
Library branches included: Main, Archives & Special Collections, Art, Law (collections,
circulation, and staff data only), and Music. Health Sciences data is included in the aggregated

Sciences publication.
10 Fringe benefits include health insurance; retirement plan; vacation, sick and holiday leave;
education benefits for employees and dependents; retiree benefits; and wellness program.
12 Same figure as last year.
13 An incentive retirement program had an impact on our professional staffing.
15 Figure for 2012–2013 is incorrect, which makes the increase over the past year appear to be much
higher than it actually is. The 12,611 figure is the total from 2010–2011. The figure for last year
should have been 19,788.
19 Decline from last year can be attributed to implementation of WorldCat Local at the end of
calendar year 2013. Use of this approach reduces the need for regular database searches.
20 Significant difference from last year’s figure is due to implementation of WorldCat Local at the
end of the 2013 calendar year. Federated searches prior to this time were accomplished through
Voyager MetaLib which was not a high-use approach. All WCL searches are federated searches
and are easily measured.
All figures are as of 04/30/2014.
