Many of you are probably already done preparing your budget for 2009. I’ve heard from some of you that you’ve been asked to reduce your budgets significantly given the current economic environment. At the same time, some firms are asking their library directors/managers to keep the budget flat. As far as I know, there aren’t many who have been tasked with managing a small increase but there may be some.
With what I’ve heard, I thought it would be interesting to do a quick survey regarding increases and decreases in law firm library budgets. Besides the possibility that it might provide some interesting information, it also gives me an opportunity to try out the MicroPoll polling site.
To participate, click on Take Poll. Once you’ve entered your answer, you should be taken to a page where you can see the results. Check back occasionally to see how others have answered the question. I will post final results with a new question about how law firm library online resources budgets are faring.
