Abstract: Indicates the state of public library materials funds and budgets 1998/99 to estimates for 2000/01, based on a response rate of 91 per cent of UK local authorities. Provides detailed tables which indicate that the position is neutral. Overall total library expenditure increased in line with general inflation which kept pace with book, but not periodical, price increases. There was a decrease of 2.5 per cent in total materials expenditure, but audio-visual expenditure grew. Staff numbers reduced mainly affecting non-professional staff.
