This Thursday we will be discussing the book budget for the 2009 fiscal year. The total amount that we have to spend is $110,000.
The computer science book collection "Safari" ($7,100) will come out of the Library Automation Budget and so will not affect the book budget. However, there will not be an allocation for CIS this year.
Megan would like to combine some of the business allocations to increase flexibility.
The Reference budget will probably decrease with the elimination of some big-ticket Gale publications.
I will put together a first-draft budget for Thursday's meeting but if you have any suggestions that I can incorporate, please let me know.
