Saying Goodbye to the Electronic Resources Fund
This presentation introduces new concepts and a new way of thinking about the library budget as more than just a way of spending funds, but also as a tool for planning and reporting, for both management and selectors. It will give attendees ideas about restructuring their own library budgets in ways that will facilitate more accurate tracking of increases in ongoing expenses, annual reporting for associations’ statistics, as well as better control over budget expenditure throughout the year.
