The LibraryPress@UF is a donor development opportunity, and so funds may increase with that. Also, as
more projects and ongoing programmatic work need more ways to reach people for public scholarship,
the work of the LibraryPress@UF is all the more critical.
We expect an increase in cost recovery revenues and also expect an increase in funding due to an
internal reallocation of funds in the library.
Will grow based on repurposed positions and anticipated new support for research data.
