Subject: [SERIALST] Library Funding via University Research Dollars?

Hello all,
I was wondering how many of your libraries receive a portion of your
school's research dollars for purchase or continuation of resources.  If
you do have such an arrangement, how does it work? Does a dedicated
percentage of the university research dollars go to the library each
year?  When/how did this policy get started?  Has it been changed in
recent years? Pros/Cons?

If there are any public documents posted on your policy, please feel
free to point me there.  You can also respond off-list to<>.
