NOTE: The cost figures include labor (staff and student worker time), materials, and storage costs. Several collections were processed during more than one year, and the figures above are for completed projects only; therefore, they include hours from previous years. Starting in 2002, the time and expense spent in creating an HTML version of a guide was included in the hours spent in processing the collections.

Some figures are rounded off.
