TexShare Database Cost Subsidy for FY2020
The TexShare Databases are funded by the State of Texas, TexShare member institutions, and a grant from the US Institute of Museum and Library Services. In state Fiscal Year 2020, member participation fees provided roughly one-quarter of the funding, with 46% coming from current state appropriations and reserve funds and the remaining 29% from federal funds. The total cost of the TexShare electronic resources was slightly more than $9.97 million.
TexShare Databases Program Funding, State Fiscal Year 2020
For FY20, institutions may calculate the state and federal portion of the total cost of the TexShare electronic resources as a per user subsidy. The subsidy amounts by type of institution are:
|Per Capita Subsidy||Basis||Total Population|
|Academic - Community College||$2.59||Undergraduate FTE||400,083|
|Academic - 4 Year||$2.46||Undergraduate FTE||647,631|
|Academic - Graduate Only||$21.40||Total FTE||2,576|
|Academic - Medical/Health Science||$5.29||Total FTE plus faculty||38,744|
|Library of Clinical Medicine||$1.65||Bed count plus staff||71,001|
|Public Library||$0.16||Service population||25,748,620|
The total fee paid by the Texas State Library and Archives Commission in FY20 was multiplied by the percentage of total retail cost for each class of library. The fees paid by the class of library were subtracted, and the result was divided by the total population for that class.
