Budget cuts deliver powerful blow to MU Libraries - RUDI KELLER, Columbia Tribune

The way campus divisions implement University of Missouri budget cuts for the coming fiscal year will determine whether future reductions are decided centrally or whether control remains in the hands of deans and department chairs, Vice Chancellor for Finance Rhonda Gibler said Monday. Deans, department chairs and division directors are making decisions about how each campus unit absorbs a 5 percent cut in general fund support. In the College of Arts and Science, a cut of $4.2 million means 57 fewer faculty and staff positions. Ann Riley, interim director of MU Libraries, said the cuts mean an end to routine purchases of books in various subject areas in favor of careful decisions about which titles to buy.
