Yes, OCLC did continue its longstanding sponsorship at our highest
level (thanks OCLC!!), but folks thinking about planning should note
that we did see a 24% drop in the overall amount of sponsorship this
year (when compared to the previous year).
I don't know if that will continue or not (has the economy turned
around yet?) but it's certainly something to consider as you're
planning. Institutions with plans for increasing sponsorship, or
covering many of the costs themselves (like ASU and WCU did with the
vans and tech/video), would have a leg up, I'd think.
