Committees and Work Groups

About

In F2016-17, the Funding Work Group undertook to develop a new database funding formula characterized by:

  • Clarity and simplicity
  • Equity and impartiality
  • Sustainability.

The formula attempts to apply these principles both within and among member types (academic, K12, public and special libraries).The new formula eliminates usage as a measure for individual members, but seeks to generate member revenues reflecting broad usage across member types.

The resulting formula was approved, and following a straight 5% increase for all members in F17-18, the formula was implemented for the first time with F18-19 invoicing:

  • F16-17 - Last year of old formula
  • F17-18 - Old formula plus 5 percent
  • F18-19 - 1st year of new formula
  • F19-20 - 2nd year of new formula
  • F20-21 - 3rd year of new formula
  • F21-22 - 4th year of new formula
  • F22-23 - All KYVL members in formula under transition rules

Transition rules

Individual institutional assessments during implementation of the new formula are governed by the following transition rules:

  1. Nobody pays less than under the previous funding formula.
  2. Everyone paying less than the new formula amount reaches new formula as soon as possible, subject to a maximum annual increase of 20 percent, except:
  3. An annual increase of greater than 20 percent is applied when needed for a member institution to reach new formula in a maximum of five years.

A summary of the effects of these transition rules is as follows:

If in comparison with prior year's bill,
increase under new formula is:
Institution pays:
Less than or equal to 0% Same as current bill
More than 0% but less than 20% New formula amount
More than 20% but less than 150% 20% increase annually until new formula is reached
More than 150% (year one) Uniform annual percentage increase that will result in being in formula in five years

Funding factors and data sources

Each library type pays a base fee and a cost (or costs) based on population served. Public and academic assessments include a calculation based on collection expenditures. Publicly available data is used whenever possible. Costs estimates are updated each spring and invoices are issued in June, with estimates for the following fiscal year distributed upon payment of annual invoices.

A note about K12 access

In most Kentucky counties, school districts and public libraries both pay KYVL membership fees. This cost sharing is necessary to keep KYVL affordable for all members. If K12 districts do not elect to participate, their students do not have access to their public library's KYVL resources on school networks.
