March 2012


The Collections Allocations Team is a small group that will devise a new method for making collection allocations. It is anticipated that this will be an 18 month long process with the goal of having a new allocation method in place beginning FY 2014.

The Team will:

* Gain an understanding of the current collections budget structure
* Benchmark collections budget allocation methods with our peer institutions
* Examine LibQUAL data and the new LibQUAL Trifold data that pertains to collections
* Devise a collections allocation model that reflects the priorities of the University and the University
