					                        Annual Report of Institutional Progress
                                University Libraries
                                University of Georgia

1. Summary of Major Accomplishments

Library Collections. Total holdings surpassed 3.7M volumes, placing the Libraries 35th
       among the 111 academic members of the Association of Research Libraries

ARL Ranking. Due to increased subscriptions to electronic journals, the Libraries
      continued to rank 28th in ARL membership index. In specific types of material,
      the Libraries rank 13th in sound recordings, 6th in archival and manuscript
      holdings, 7th in cartographic materials, and 2nd in film and video.

Galileo Intergrated Libraries (GIL). This marked the second full year of using GIL as
       our automated library system to support the catalog, circulation, and processing
       functions. Beta testing was completed for Universal Borrowing, a program
       whereby any system institution member can have access to materials from all
       University System libraries. We are now conducting training sessions for a
       grouping of University system libraries in the southern part of the state.

Renovation of library buildings. The re-tiling project for the entire entry floor at the
      Science Library was completed. This project afforded us the opportunity to
      reconfigure staff work areas, to redefine the public areas on the floor, and to do
      some reduction of the material shelved in that area. This project also included
      new ceiling tiles and installation of new lighting.

       Installation of compact shelving (12,765 gross lineal feet of space) in the Main
       Library was completed. This project allows for future expansion of the Media
       Archives and the Peabody Archives Collection.

Student Learning Center. Ground was broken for the Student Learning Center on
       September 1, 2000. A furniture consultant was hired and furniture has been
       selected. Work is underway to expedite the bid process. Working with UCNS, a
       Student Learning Center Prototype has been developed in the Main Library where
       we can further define programs, needs, and services for the SLC. A web page for
       the Student Learning Center has been created that includes a project history, a live
       image from a video camera, floor plans, time-lapsed video of the construction
       site, and an interior tour.

Special Collections Libraries Building. Design drawings were completed and a display
       model was built to use for fundraising. The building was presented before the
       Board of Regents this spring. Although it didn‟t make it on list of capital projects
       this year, we anticipate that it will next year.

Development. The Libraries continue to make substantial progress in fund raising. This
      past year, commitments and collections totaling over $730,000 were received.

Major New Online Resources. Spending for online resources continues to increase, with
      licenses that permit campus-wide access becoming the norm. This past year, the
      Libraries acquired access to 39 new resources, including journals, books, and
      databases. A sampling follows:
             Art Index Retrospective
             Business Cycle Indicators
             Columbia International Affairs
             Communication Abstracts
             Compendex
             Index of Christian Art
             E*Subscribe
             Index to Current Urban Documents
             International Pharmaceutical Abstracts
             New Grove‟s Dictionary of Music and Musicians
             Poem Finder
             Policy File
             Political Risk Yearbook
             Poole‟s Plus, and Tech Data Express

Libraries Homepage. Greatly enhanced the Libraries Homepage with several features
       including an interactive staff directory, 54 subject guides, and a Frequently Asked
       Question file. Sixteen departmental sites were re-worked. In addition, we
       compiled an extensive guide to Government Information on the Web as a possible
       prototype for a GALILEO government information database for the state and
       designed a new interface for the Electronic Journal Locator.

Coordinating Electronic Resources. Two positions were created to monitor the use and
      effectiveness of various electronic resources and to coordinate procurement and
      licensing of these resources. Data gathering and the design and programming of a
      Web-based system for tracking electronic resource purchases, licensing, and
      problems was completed this year. This information will be invaluable in
      assessing electronic resources

Digital Library of Georgia DLG released the Southeastern Native American Documents
        online resource to the public as part of GALILEO. Work on the Clifford “Baldy”
        Baldowski collection continued, with the successful creation of an Ultimate
        database, images, and web interface to the collection. This collection is expected

       to go live in the fall of 2001. Numerous collections from the Hargrett Rare Book
       and Manuscript Library were imaged, transcribed, and SGML encoded
       throughout the year, and moves were made to create the infrastructure to house
       these materials online under GALILEO. Summer saw the start of the first DLG
       project working with materials from outside the UGA Libraries. The Camilla
       Riot Manuscripts contains materials from the National Archives documenting the
       incident in Mitchell County Georgia during Reconstruction. Other digital projects
       such as the Georgia Books and Newspapers (mainly transcription of the Cherokee
       Phoenix) continued – an additional year of the Phoenix was added to the
       prototype Georgia Historic Newspapers Database.

Library Organization. Two AULs accepted appointments outside UGA, Merryll Penson
       to the Board of Regents, University System of Georgia and Barbara Winters to
       Marshal University. The result was a further flattening of the organization by not
       replacing that administrative tier, thus demonstrating our interdependence. The
       Department Heads Group continues to meet weekly in a facilitated fashion
       employing appropriate methods to address and resolve issues. In addition, this
       year saw the positive five-year review of the University Librarian.

Government Documents

   Processing. Automated current U.S. documents processing, began automation of
    Georgia documents processing which will result in much improved access to
    government documents in the online catalog.
   State Publications of Georgia. We digitized our first video and audio cd and added
    approximately 250 documents in electronic text to the database. As a result of a
    statewide meeting of members of the FDLP (Federal Library Depository Program)
    hosted by the UGA Libraries on May 10, a commitment was received for cooperative
    cataloging for state documents and Valdosta State University and Georgia Southern
    University committed to 100% selective depository status for Georgia documents

2. Progress in Strategic Planning

University Strategic Planning Process.

        The Libraries strategic plan was reviewed and adopted by the University‟s Office
of Strategic Planning in October 1999. A copy of this plan is included with some slight
modification to costs and timetables.

Report on 2000/2001 Goals

   Continue planning for new library space.
      The Regents authorized the use of private funds for an architect to design the
        special collections building. Design drawings have been completed (see major

     Milestones for the Student Learning Center include furniture selection,
      determining the nature of the book collection in the reading room, and finalizing
      staffing and service patterns.

   Introduce the Digital Library of Georgia. Stephen Miller joined the faculty as the
    program director for this project. In collaboration with GALILEO, books,
    manuscripts, radio and television programs, maps, and other materials are being
    digitized and made available on the Internet (see major accomplishments).

   Integrate local web resources with GALILEO. The University Libraries offer an
    increasing variety of electronic resources through the Internet in addition to those
    offered by GALILEO. This year, we integrated UGA and GALILEO offerings so
    that students and faculty can access all resources from one place.

   Evaluate the administrative organization of the Libraries. The Libraries adopted a
    flatter organization (see major accomplishments).

   Expand collection of electronic publications. 39 new electronic resources were added
    in 00/01, which include journals, books, and databases, for a total of 167. Sselect
    databases include multiple titles. For example, the EJL (Electronic Journal Locator
    currently has 24,458 items of which approximately 18,000 are unique titles.

Goals for 2001/2002

   Complete planning for the Student Learning Center. This building will be complete
    and occupied by July 2003. Many final decisions on furniture, staffing, equipment,
    and program offerings will be completed over the coming year.

   Design a wireless network in both the Main Library and the Science Library. A
    wireless network would allow students to use portable computers anywhere in these
    libraries. In addition, a program to allow students to check-out portable computers to
    use in these libraries will be explored.

   Continue planning for Special Collections Libraries facility. This building currently
    tops the University's list of capital priorities. During the coming year, it will be
    important to move it onto the Regents list of projects and to continue raising funds for
    construction and endowment.

   Complete remodel of the main floor of the Science Library. Thanks to funding from
    Physical Plant, the main floor of the science library has been re-tiled, new ceiling tiles
    and lighting was also completed (see major accomplishments). Over the coming year,
    the rearrangement of the collection and the purchase of new furniture and equipment
    will greatly enhance this space.

   Expand collection of electronic publications. This is an ongoing goal.

3.       Progress in assessing unit/area effectiveness

Access to More Information. Completed the conversion of GALILEO to version 7
       (SiteSearch version 4) with the new homepage becoming the sole access to
       GALILEO. Migrated GALILEO participating institutions to the new FirstSearch
       interface for 70+ databases. There are now 112 new databases in the GALILEO
       menus that are UGA-purchased resources. Completed the first full year of remote
       access to GALILEO by all Georgia citizens via public library passwords. Initiated
       and completed the DOOR (Database of Online Resources) project. It is currently
       in the GALILEO Demo system and will be in the production system this month.

Interlibrary Loan. The Lending Unit increased their fill rate to other libraries from 57%
        in FY 2000 to 59% for this year. The Borrowing Unit cut turnaround time for
        UGA users‟ requests, now averaging 8.4 calendar days (not working days). This
        is an improvement from last year‟s 9.8 days and a very significant improvement
        from the benchmark 14.0 days measured in a 1996 ARL study. Our web-based
        request form, electronic payment of fees, electronically transmitted articles,
        electronic delivery of articles to patrons along with e-mail notifications, all aided
        in significantly shortening turnaround time. The continued increase in requests for
        UGA materials demonstrates both how richly our collection is regarded by other
        institutions and how responsive ILL Lending is in its commitment to resource
        sharing. As a final tribute to our work in the area ILL Department was named the
        recipient of the 2001 GOLD Interlibrary Loan Library of The Year Award "in
        recognition of service excellence and commitment to resource sharing." This
        award is voted by members of GOLD (Georgia Online Database), the statewide
        organization of approximately 200 libraries of all types.

Performance Assessment.

        With the hire of the Performance Assessment Librarian, Joan Conger, and the
         Electronic Resources Coordinator, Dana Walker, we began collecting database
         usage statistics from ABC-CLIO, Bell & Howell, ISI, JSTOR, Lexis/Nexis, ISI,
         Poole‟s Plus, Project Muse, RLG Research Group and SilverPlatter databases.
         Continuing to try to procure figures from other vendors.
        Conducted an extensive comparison of the journal coverage for Ebsco and
         Proquest to assist the GALILEO Collection Development Committee assess the
         strengths of each product.
        Surveyed 500 south campus faculty and graduate students on their use of the
         Electronic Journal Locator and began tracking use of the Electronic Journal
         Locator. As a result, designed and programmed a Web-based system for tracking
         electronic resource purchases, licensing, and problems.
        Departments evaluated the effectiveness of their workflow. In addition, an
         internal workflow committee was formed to examine the processing of materials
         across department lines. The objective of both activities was to reduce the time it
         takes from receipt of material to patron availability and to be more responsive to
         patron needs. The result, thus far, has been 1) a new ordering workflow, 2) DLC

       copy cataloging upon receipt, 3) a new gift books review procedure, 4) extensive
       use of SQL and Access to support routine processing tasks and special projects,
       and 5) the use of macros. This is an ongoing activity.
      Identified the need to develop an assessment strategy for library programs and
       services. While relying on national standards such as ARL statistics, we will
       need develop our own standards of assessment in areas where there is a lack of a
       national standard.

Comparator and Aspirational Institutions. Tables comparing the University Libraries
     with our 15 comparator institutions is attached. In summary, the Libraries
     consistently rank in the top third of the comparator institutions and in the lower
     third against the aspirational institutions. However, even against the aspirational
     institutions, the Libraries compares very favorable in its special collections,
     ranking 2nd in manuscripts and archives, 2nd in video and film collections, and 5th
     in its collection of sound recordings. Clearly, these are areas of remarkable
     collection strength.

5. Overall health of the Libraries

      The following factors will affect the overall health of the Libraries and need to be
monitored closely. (These are essentially the same concerns that were listed last year.)

          Cost of books, journals, and electronic resources. More and more electronic
           resources are being published every year. However, despite this and despite
           the general impression that print is a fading medium, more books are being
           published every year. At the same time, the cost of journals continues to
           escalate at rates above 10% per year and electronic means of publishing do
           not yet provide any relief from these increasing costs. This is an especially
           critical problem because the base budget for books and journals was not
           increased for FY99, FY00, or FY01. We continue to appreciate the one-time
           funding that has been forthcoming from the Provost and appreciate her
           continued statements that the library budget for these materials is very

          Salaries. According to the most recent survey of the 111 academic library
           members of the Association of Research Libraries, the median salary for
           librarians at the University of Georgia has dropped from 63rd in FY2000 to
           75th in FY2001. It should be pointed out that the overall ranking for the
           Libraries is 28th out of these same 111 institutions in the ARL membership
           index. It is doubtful that any other unit on campus that ranks this high among
           its peers would also rank so low in median salaries compared to the same peer
           group. Additional attention to salaries would be welcome before market
           pressure begins to hamper recruitment and retention. The same applies to

    staff salaries as well as librarians. We are looking forward to guidance on this
    issue as a result of the Deloitte & Touche report.

   Information Technology. All libraries are increasingly reliant upon
    information technology and we have been very successful in providing new
    electronic resources. This has largely been accomplished through reallocation
    and through one-time funds. As with the rest of the campus, information
    technology in the Libraries needs more focused and secure funding. The
    technology fee will provide considerable relief for technology used directly by

   Library Organization. As stated above, after the two Associate University
    Librarians left for other positions, we‟ve introduced a flatter organization. Our
    goal is to have an organization that can quickly identify and respond to

                                  UNIVERSITY LIBRARIES
                                  STRATEGIC PRIORITIES

Consistently ranked in the top 30 of the 110 members of the Association of Research
       Libraries, the University Libraries are one of the University‟s greatest strengths and a
       point of pride. Surveys of students and faculty reveal that the Libraries are held in
       high regard and provide outstanding support for instruction, research, and service.

Student Learning Center

Opportunity: The library component of the Student Learning Center will allow us to
      improve library services and to build stronger partnerships with faculty and other
      campus units, especially UCNS and OISD.

Need: Staff and equipment not covered by the construction budget.

One-time costs: $1,500,000 to fully equip the facility with computer workstations and
       associated devices for opening day, July 2003.

On-going costs: 15 FTE new staff positions ($340,000 plus fringe benefits). Maintain
      and replace the computer workstations and associated devices ($500,000).

Development: The Libraries have identified $6M in naming opportunities in the
      Electronic Teaching Library that could be used to support programs for that

Special Collections Building

Opportunity: The Special Collections of the University Libraries are a major strength for
      the University. In the figures reported to the Association of Research Libraries,
      the University Libraries rank 6th out of the 111 members in archive holdings.

Need: Adequate space to house and preserve these expanding collections. The proposed
      special collections building, now second on the campus list of capital priorities,
      meets this need.

Cost: The new building will cost $36M, with one-third coming from private sources and
      the remainder funded through the Regents. As of spring 2001, the Libraries have
      raised $8.5M of its $12M goal. The President will present the building for a
      second time to the Regents in June 2002.

Development: The Libraries are seeking an additional $12M in private funding for an
      endowment to support the collections, related programs, and staffing.

The New Collection
Opportunity: The flow of recorded knowledge is as vital to the University as water
      and electricity. As the importance of electronic publications increases, the
      Libraries are seeking the appropriate balance of print and electronic
      publications. It is also supporting attempts to use the Internet to improve
      scholarly communication, but these attempts to date have not reduced costs.
Need: The cost of scholarly publications, both print and electronic, continues to
       increase each year at a significant rate, especially in bio-medicine and the life
       sciences. Other universities, notably Ohio State University, have indexed the
       library materials budget to match inflationary costs. We need a similar index
       to continue to support instruction and research. Otherwise, we will face an
       intellectual brown-out as the flow of recorded knowledge is impeded. (Note:
       the library materials budget has not been increased since FY1998.)
Cost: Experience at other Universities over the past few years indicate that an annual
       increase of about 5% is needed to keep pace. This would amount to an
       increase of about $580,000 based on the FY2002 budget.

Digital Library of Georgia

Opportunity: The technology to create a digital library of text, images, sound, and video
      is becoming increasingly powerful. Several projects are already underway.

Need: Funding for staff and equipment.

Cost: The Regents have requested funding for digital library efforts in their FY2002
       budget. This funding would be managed by the Regents office, but a significant
       portion would cover the expansion of efforts in the University Libraries and make
       us a leader in this area.

Development: State funding will be used as matching funds to leverage grants from
      federal and private sources whenever possible.

New Media Department and Digital Media Lab

Opportunity: With over 80,000 radio and television programs, the Media Archive and
      Peabody Awards Collection is the third largest such collection in the country.

Need: A facility where students and faculty can find sophisticated workstations to view
      and use the collection for research and instruction. A new Media Department
      and Digital Media Lab should be included in the building that will be constructed
      to face the Student Learning Center. The President has stated that he supports
      including this facility in this building.

Cost: The space required is about 20,000 square feet and would cost about $4M.

Fine Arts Library

Opportunity: When the School of Art occupies its new facility, most of the faculty and
      students who use the art and music collections will be grouped together on the
      east campus.

Need: A Fine Arts Library located on the east campus. The School of Art, the School of
      Music, and the Libraries have proposed that the existing Music Library in the
      Music Building be expanded to house such a library.

Cost: $7M to expand the Music Library.

Development: It is anticipated that $2M could be raised privately.
