we have maintained our high rank in terms of microform holdings and
have considerably improved our rank in volumes added. The increase in
volumes added may have been due in part to the fact that we were
careful_this year to report all materials acquired, not just those
which were ordered through the acquisitions department. Similarly,
our rank dropped in terms of current periodicals not so much because
we cancelled subscriptions but because a more accurate count was
made available as a by—product of the journal project. The N.E.H.
grant which supports Instructional Services helped improve our rank
in personnel. The A.R.L. statistics for Kentucky include the Law,
Agriculture, and Medical libraries. Actual figures in each of the
categories for 1974-75 are given below:
