40 Books [title count] (column 2 digital/electronic)
Use the total number of e-books for your campus in Table 2.
Note: For the past two years, we have used a report developed by systems librarians in the Office of Library Services using SFX institutional holdings data that may be significantly different from previous years' numbers, which used e-books cataloged in Aleph as a basis for the count. This current data is a more accurate count of e-books available to individual libraries.

This definition includes, in any format, periodicals, newspapers, and annuals (reports, yearbooks, etc.); the journals, memoirs, proceedings, transactions, etc. of societies; and numbered monographic series."

43 Serials titles (column 2 digital/electronic)
