Five Year Program Review 2010-2015

Using the ACRL Standards for Libraries in Higher Education as a framework, the Harvey A. Andruss Library performed a Five Year Academic Program Review for the Years 2010 to 2015.



  • Provide a summary of the program budget along with the overall department budget.

Over the first three years of the review period the Library’s budget varied, but in the last two years it decreased and stayed static, with drops in Education & General (E & G) funds.  This decrease prompted a review of expenses and a reduction in subscriptions based on low usage and curricular changes.  Approximately one third of the Library’s funding for collections is regularly covered by the Technology Fee monies.  In the last three years the Library has drawn upon endowment interest to make it possible to add new items to the collection and purchase new furniture and carpeting.

Appendix C provides a numerical summary of the five year budgets.
