University libraries all over the world have their own place of importance in the scheme of higher learning. Libraries are not only repositories of knowledge but also dispensers of such knowledge. The development and execution of the library budget is one of the library director’s most important tasks. The process should be integrated with the planning and evaluation of library services. Once reviewed and approved by the library board, the budget serves as a roadmap for the delivery of library services in the subsequent year. This chapter will outline a typical procedure for creating and approving the library budget. This study discusses the execution and administration of the library budget. The budget process provides an opportunity to request necessary funding for established services, as well as supplemental support to address increased use or provide new services. The budget also creates a way to track required revenues and reportable expenditures.
