Abstract:
The University of Arizona has had a student library fee since 2006. The fee started out at $15/year for students and now stands at $120/year. In FY2011-12, fee revenue for the University Libraries is expected to be about $3.5 million—a critical chunk of our budget. This poster will describe the approach that enabled the Libraries to successfully implement a fee. Garnering support from student government leaders and advisory boards has been crucial. The poster will also detail how student fee money is used, challenges we’ve faced, and strategies that might work at your institution.
