FACULTY ALLOCATION FORMULA
My name is Jeff Dunn. I am the reference Librarian at Weatherford College at Weatherford, Texas. I am asking some of the community colleges in Texas what kind of allocation formula your college uses for buying books and other materials for the faculty. We use a formula developed for us by the accounting department about 25 years ago. We are currently searching for something more up-to-date.
Thank you for any assistance you can provide
Hi, Jeff. Our Collection Development Librarian purchases books based on:
- Aligning expenditures with our circulation stats by LC subject
- New College Programs
- Facutly suggestions
- Student and staff suggestions
