Dear Hasafranim,
A couple years ago, my library was in the middle of a budget crises, i.e. the 
book budget was slashed in half, periodicals were eliminated, and my salary 
didn't fare too well either.
Well, there's a new sheriff in town and it's time to submit new proposed 
budgets. I'd like to try to make the case for a slight increase. It would help 
to have some statistics in hand -- book prices increasing, etc -- and arguments 
formulated to present to the board. 
For instance, I found this --, 
which discusses price increases for Amazon used books. Are there any other 
articles out there I can use for ammunition?
Chag Sameach,
