WHEREAS, All missions of the University rely on resources provided by the Libraries and;


WHEREAS, the Libraries’ materials budget (journals and books) has remained stable because the Library has redirected its internal resources towards its support and;


WHEREAS, without additional budgetary support, the Libraries will be forced to make further, more severe cuts in the material’s budget, Now, therefore;


BE IT RESOLVED that the Auburn University Senate supports the Libraries’ request for new permanent, ongoing funding to be used to support price increases in the materials budget and needed new research materials.
