20 Survey Results: Survey Questions and Responses
75,000 It’s unclear how the funding model was selected prior to 2014. After 2015 we allocated

Smaller 6 20%
Larger 9 30%
About the same 15 50%
Although budgeted at the same amount as previous years, we have historically allowed the fund to be
over-spent. This will not be possible for this year.
Fund was discontinued.
The funding in the last year was almost exactly the same amount as it had been the year before.
The service was postponed due to budget issues halfway through FY16.
The fund didn’t exist before FY16.
We anticipate that the growth of the fund will become unsustainable.
About the same N=4
Allocation has been $40,000 since 2013.
Fund was $25K for ﬁrst and second year. Fund was pilot program for those two years. Additional $10K
added after second year to continue fund until exhausted or more funds approved.
Initially $30,000 was approved, but due to demand, an additional $15,000 was released later in the year.
We are still in beta and trying to determine the right amount of funding. Usage is increasing.
15. If you answered “Larger” above, has an increase in funding led to an increase in staﬃng to handle
the requests for funds? N=9
Yes 0 0%
No 9 100%
Handling the requests is not too time intensive.
No additional staﬃng has been added. We are planning to hire a Scholarly Communications Librarian
