My situation is similar to those described by Beth and Elizabeth.

I have no budget of my own because the materials budget is divied up among
departments for the faculty to spend on any library materials. I can offer
suggestions to faculty, but... As was mentioned, it means there has been no
collection development. Unspent funds do revert to librarian's discretion
after our deadline in May. Then Reference and Media get to fight it out, so
I will get to spend a modest amount in the summer.

On the brighter side, the Library received a special, extra $100,000
allocation last year, so I did my part to spend as much as I could while I
had the chance. <grin>
