EFTS Award- Western Pennsylvania Forbes Regional Campus Health Sciences

We have spent over $250 on ILL's for FY08. Our yearly budget is $300 and in order to keep under budget, 14% of our FY08 ILLs had to go unfilled due to cost. Our ILL requests have gone up 37% in FY08 and will likely continue to increase in FY09. Our journal collection has been reduced due to lack of space for back issues and over all library budget cuts. A number of new physicians are coming from a larger hospital system that has a larger library with more resources than we have at Forbes Regional and it is difficult to keep them actively using the library if we continually tell them we cannot get the articles they are requesting.
