Resolution: Libraries Budget
Whereas libraries constitute an essential resource for the research and teaching mission of the University of Colorado at Boulder,
Whereas the University of Colorado at Boulder seeks a place of distinction among the foremost public research universities, and
Whereas the costs of library materials are rising at a rate in excess of 12 per cent per year,
Therefore, the BFA calls upon the Chancellor and Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs to take all necessary measures that assure that the Libraries obtain sufficient funds to acquire library materials at a rate which will guarantee the University of Colorado at Boulder Libraries a status equivalent to that of the top fifteen public research universities.
The BFA further calls upon the Chancellor, Vice Chancellor for Academic
Affairs and the Dean of the Libraries to develop and implement a plan
of funding for the Libraries which will assure the continuing status of
the libraries among the top fifteen public research universities.
