Abstract: Libraries in public universities and colleges, and sometimes within private institutions as well, are frequently called upon at the end of the fiscal-year cycle to spend-out not only the library’s allocated budget, but also the unspent residue of the entire university budget. With dozens of individual accounts, the university must juggle all of the physical plant orders that did not arrive as expected, costs for benefits such as health insurance that were lower than projections, and leftover monies from departmental lines and campus units who failed to spend all of their allocations. As nonsensical as it often seems, spending out the budget to the last penny before fiscal year close is a regular routine and an annual challenge.
