    10. 10. The impact on academic libraries – a perfect storm?
    11. 11. The impact on academic libraries - Global <ul><li>ICOLC Statement on the Global Economic Crisis and Its Impact on Consortia Licences </li></ul><ul><li>“ current crisis [is] of such significance that we cannot simply assume that libraries and publishers share a common perspective about the magnitude of the crisis and the best approaches to deal with it” </li></ul><ul><li>Following forecasts: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Significant and widespread cuts in budget levels for libraries and consortia </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Cuts will be prolonged </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Exchange rate fluctuations are complicating and/or amplifying the impact </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Full statement at:: http://www.library.yale.edu/consortia/icolc-econcrisis-0109.htm </li></ul></ul>
    12. 12. The impact on academic libraries – UK <ul><li>Research Information Network: “Scholarly books and journals at risk: Responding to the challenges of a changing economy” </li></ul><ul><li>Fall in the value of Sterling “has already dented library purchasing budgets by 16%. As a result, many large university libraries anticipate deficits of around £400,000 this year and some contracts have yet to be paid.” </li></ul><ul><li>Uncertainty over currency fluctuations means “libraries’ budgetary positions may therefore change unpredictably during the year. […] faced with hard decisions about what to cut, they will be forced to cancel what they can as renewals fall due , rather than what their users might best manage without.” </li></ul><ul><li>“ As the proportion of library acquisitions budgets that is spent on journals has risen (from 46% to 53% over the past decade), book purchasing has been ever more squeezed (dropping from £32 to £30 per FTE student over the past decade). Any further reduction in book purchasing would have a disproportionately damaging effect on the humanities, and many areas of the social sciences ” </li></ul><ul><li>Full briefing at: http://www.rin.ac.uk/files/Scholarly_books_journals_at_risk.pdf: </li></ul>
