Use Excel to create a budget for the library that addresses (or does not address!) the interests of the employees/board and the community, and the fact that the SOLS databases are no longer available for free. Now, your library must pay $1,256.00/year to access the databases. Include the cost of the databases in your new budget. Be sure to balance the budget with a 5% cut or a 1% increase to your budget. Briefly defend your budget decisions for a cut or an increase. Post your Excel spreadsheet as a Google Spreadsheet on your blog, and make sure I can open it and click on the cells to view your formulas.
