A Media Resources and Services Budgetary Analysis and Allocation System for the Minnesota State College System.
Carrison, Dale K., Ed.
A budgetary analysis and allocation system for college and university media (audiovisual and library) resources and services is proposed which is aimed at helping administrative personnel make decisions concerning future needs. This Minnesota Plan, used for the state college system, proposes a media materials budget based on three components--an annual base budget of $100,000 per institution, a materials budget of $15 per FTE student and faculty (to be divided 85 percent for program materials and 15 percent for special allocations), and a collection deficiency supplement, to be determined by a formula called Minimum Materials Collection size. A media services staffing formula is also proposed, based on the amount of public services, technical services, and production services. (SK)
