I have a question about budget allocation formulas for academic libraries. I'm searching for a website or online full-text source to provide an introduction and overview of the various types of formulas that are used to allocate collection funds. So far, I've searched the ALA (American Library Association)and the ACRL(Association for College Research Libraries) websites, did a general Google search, searched Library Literature, Ebsco Host, and Emerald Full text databses. I have found surprisingly little on the topic, but really need an online source to explain the variety of ways that limited collection funds can be allocated in a college library.

Thank you for your input, Nellie. The sources you provided did give me more needed background of ways that various colleges allocated funds. I was looking for more of an overview in one source (more of a "how-to")to introduce me to the variety of options, and the specific formulas themselves. The last two sources on your list were not directly relevant to the topic. One was about copyright and the other about budgeting for electronic sources. Overall, though, your research was helpful. Thank you.
