There's a really interesting article about return on investment for library funding in terms of research dollars in Liber Quarterly for Dec 2008. Available here:

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 firstname.lastname@example.org<mailto:email@example.com>.
