ACRL Statistics Instructions: Total Library Expenditures (5 & 6)

OSULP Instructions: Total Expenditures

Contact the accounting representative (Shane Melton). for these figures.

Question 5: Are figures reported in Canadian dollars?  - Answer NO.

Question 6: Total Library Expenditures (7+8+9) -- 
These figures can get messy -- the simplest and cleanest approach is to use the figures provided by the OSU accounting office. The Total Library Materials(Q7) plus Total Salaries and Wages(Q8) plus Other Expenditures(Q9) should equal Total Library Expenditures (Q6). This figure should also be the same total given by the accounting office.
