tistics

Here is a copy of the Library portion of the annual ABA Questionnaire. Comparing it with last year's, comment:

I find the following worthy of

Q.l.

Volumes added. Our gross hard copy volumes added increased from 6275 to 8275, one of the largest totals in recent years. The difference between 8275 and the 10,415 reported is unbound briefs - which the ABA instructs us to include as "volumes" at a rate of five volumes per linear foot. I did not report these at all until we had them shelved in the move back to this building, and then in two parts (last year and this) so our totals would not be too distorted. In the last two years we have reported a total of 7260 "volumes" of unbound briefs.

Q.4.

Microfiche acquisitions are down by 5,000 - a direct result of the problems the GPO is having with its microfiche contractors.

Q.20.

LEXIS use went from 925 to 1909 hours and WESTLAW from 1571 to 2889. This includes office use.

Q.30.

Hours worked by students went up even more than I had anticipated - from 5828 to 8973. Because we had more non­ work study students than in the past, our cost more than doubled - from $10,694 to $21,289. I had anticipated this increase, so it was within the sum I allocated to this. The federal contribution increased from $13,688 to $19,349.(Q .57)

Q.46.

The amount spent on new titles (identified here as non­ serials) more than doubled, from $32,944 to $68,787. This is 1 1 .4% of the total spent on library materials, a great improvement over last year but still short of the 15% it should be to assure adequate growth of the collection.


-2Q.69.

Interlibrary loan activity continues to increase. We thought that our requests for loans would go down when we got the collection back in one place, but they increased 17%, from 226 to 266. Requests sent to us increased about the same percentage 18%, from 346 to 427. We filled 47% of these requests. This growth explains why we have trained another staff person to assist Janet in processing interlibrary loan requests.
