Hello all,
I am trying to justify an increase in our miniscule purchasing budget.
I am curious as to what percentage of your total collection budget is
spent on VHS, DVD, etc. I don't care about dollar figures, of course
larger Universities will have larger budgets, but the percentage other
devote to this department will be illuminating. Ours is roughly 3% of
the entire collection budget. Thanks. Please respond to me directly, I
don't want to tie up the list on this, but if you all are curious I'll
let you know what i find out.
