The library worked closely with Risk Management and Facilities to address issues with furnishings, HAVC, and noise transfer and identified funds for addressing identified issues. Risk Management assisted with safety issues and testing of artifacts being placed in the Murphy Office.

14) The University will endeavor to increase our overall enrollment to 14,500 by the year 2015.

15) With our enrollment growth, West Georgia will remain committed to the following targets of academic quality: student to faculty of 18 to 1; average class size of 29; full-time to part-time faculty ratio of 4.4 to 1. most recent (2010) National Council for Education Statistics (NCES) Academic Libraries Survey report 

ASSESSMENT: National Council for Education Statistics (NCES) Academic Libraries Survey report

IMPROVEMENTS: The ratio of library faculty to students fell from 1.72 librarians per 1000 students shown by the 2008 NCES survey, to 1.3 librarians and other professional staff per 1000 shown by the 2010 NCES report. University enrollment continued to grow. No faculty position have been added to the library since 2004.

The most recent National Council for Education Statistics (NCES) Academic Libraries Survey report (2010) indicates that the national average of librarians and other professional staff/1000 students was 3.72/1000, with the University System of Georgia average being 3.05/1000. In the same reporting period, the University of

West Georgia had 1.3 librarians and other professional staff for every 1000 students.

In overall staffing, the 2010 NCES survey indicates indicates that the national average of library staff/1000 students was 8.41/1000, with the University System of Georgia average being 6.99/1000. In the same reporting period, the University of West Georgia had 5.28 library staff for every 1000 students.

UWG would have to more than double its library faculty to reach the 2010 University System of Georgia’s libraries’ staffing average, and nearly triple its library faculty to equal the 2010 national average. Note that the 2010 NCES report includes data from many for-profit institutions, thus the numbers for the University System of Georgia institutions were used to compute faculty and library staffing ratios for this report. For- profit institutions are included in the national ratios.

16) West Georgia will develop several new facilities to improve quality along with meeting capacity demands due to enrollment growth.

GOAL: Continue renovation to the library’s second and third floors, to complete classrooms, study rooms, Assistive Technology Lab, ADA-compliant rest rooms.

ASSESSMENT: Observation; Facilities documents regarding projects.

IMPROVEMENTS: Progress was made on third floor classroom completion. Furniture and technology orders were placed. The newly-renovated library (with work continuing outside the funded project), expanded service hours to 24/5 fall semester 2011. The door count for FY12 was 509,959, compared to FY 08, when 251,451 people entered the library; FY 09, when 285,447 entered the library, and FY 10. when 318,412 entered the library. FY 11 figures are not available, as count mechanisms were not in place during construction.

17) Capital Campaign: The Development Office will prepare for a capital campaign to assist in meeting the long-term needs of the University of West Georgia.

18) Communication and Marketing: The Office of University Communications and Marketing (UCM) will internally and externally promote the missions and goals of the strategic plan. This will be achieved by aligning the institution's integrated marketing plan (advertising, visual identity standards, web presence, media relations, etc.) with the strategic plan.

19) Community Relations: The University will engage the local community educationally, culturally and recreationally.

GOAL: Ingram Library will organize and promote cultural events to engage the campus and surrounding community.

ASSESSMENT: Program statistics; press releases and news articles.

IMPROVEMENTS: Ingram Library sponsored and hosted 49 programs, drawing 4,545 attendees, including the Murphy Office Dedication, which drew two former governors and every living Speaker of the Georgia House of Representatives, and an audience of over 700; “The Many Faces of George Washington” exhibit from the Mount Vernon Ladies Association and the Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History; a Civil War book discussion series funded by a grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities and the American Library Association; numerous exhibit talks, readings, exhibitions, displays, musical performances, and social events to support community engagement.

20) Describe any notable achievements toward selected goals(s) during this reporting year.

Ingram Library completed a replica of the State Capitol Office of Georgia House Speaker Tom Murphy, and interpretive exhibits. The Murphy Office Dedication program in April 2012 drew some 700 attendees, two former governors, and every living speaker of the Georgia House of Representatives. The library secured special initiative funding for 24/5 service hours, drawing over 500,000 patrons during the year.

21) List any resources that could have assisted your department with achieving/exceeding departmental goals and how they could have facilitated/improved the work of your the work of your department?

Comparisons between data from the 2010 and 2008 NCES Academic Library Surveys indicate that Ingram Libray’s librarians to student ratios, already some one-third of national ratios, had fallen even further.
