Current and Emerging Budgeting Techniques in Academic Libraries, Including a Critique of the Model Budget Analysis Program of the State of Washington.
Allen, Kenneth S.
Techniques employed in the study included: an examination of the relevant literature; actual visitation and interviews with directors, associate directors, assistant directors, heads of appropriate divisions of the selected and other libraries, vice-presidents for business and finance, deans, budget officers and budget managers of the institutions visited. In an attempt to maintain a common basis for inquiry, a questionnaire was developed and was used in the process of the field interviews. The questionnaire results appear as an appendix to this report. The responses, while representing only a small segment of the research library population, are sufficient to provide some intriguing insights into the present state of research library budgeting. It was inevitable that questions concerning budgets, financial support and fiscal management would lead into an exploration of management and administrative problems in general. Thus the questions range from the effect of the current economic recession on library schools to the impact of faculty status on a library's budget. (Author/NH)
