1 How Using ARL Statistics Helped Get Us More Money! Steve Hiller University of Washington Libraries June 25, 2010

2 University of Washington Operating Revenues $2.5 Billion in (excluding hospital patients) Core education budget $700 million Libraries represent 3.0 to 3.5%

3 University of Washington Budget Process Legislature cut UW budget by $20.6 million dollar (6.3%) after $80 million dollar appropriation reduction (25%) for Undergraduate resident tuition increased by 14% All UW units given a 5% cut Units submitted short reports on impact of budget and plans for ; met separately with Provost to discuss University allocated new tuition dollars for first time using Activity-Based Budgeting (ABB) to mitigate 5% cut

4 UW Libraries Budget Scenario $3.6 million reduction (12%) in % Budget Cut in If 5% taken in all library budgets impact is: Operations $35K Library Materials $575K Personnel $745K Total $1.355 million Facing a $5 million reduction in biennium Core education budget $700 million; library 3%

5 Libraries Budget Meeting Budget impacts document submitted March 1 Hearing with Provost and staff on April 1 Key messages: –FY10 cuts impacts came after a period where we lost ground to competitor institutions – weve hit bedrock –Information resources budget under real stress which leads to a weakened research infrastructure and competitiveness –Increased use of the Libraries services and resources (onsite and online)

6 ARL Data Used to Show UW Lagging Behind Peers and Falling Fast Used ARL Statistics Median of top quartile used (where we have traditionally ranked) Period covered is from through –Good funding years; no changes in ARL membership Expenditures are shown as annual averages of two year totals to minimize year to year changes and UW biennial spending pattern budget comparisons with final budget made with results from ARL special survey in Autumn 2009

7 Total Library Expenditures UW Seattle & ARL Median Top Quartile : to (Annual Average)

8 Monograph and Serial Expenditures UW Seattle & ARL Median Top Quartile: to (Annual Average )

9 Base Budget Changes in ARL Libraries: Compared to ARL Libraries responding. Each dot represents one library. UW – $3.6 million reduction

10 Acquisitions Budget Changes in ARL Libraries: Compared to ARL Libraries responding. Each dot represents one library. UW - $1.5 million cut

11 Personnel Budget Changes in ARL Libraries: Compared to ARL Libraries responding. Each dot represents one library. UW – 29 positions lost

12 The Result? UW Libraries Budget 5% institutional reduction ($1.353 million for Libraries) Mitigated by $1 million in Provost reinvestment funds (total of 1.3% cut) Libraries received highest amount of reinvestment money of any University unit (25% of total reinvestment funds) Some additional indirect cost recovery funds still anticipated Was it all due to ARL statistics? Well, perhaps not all!
