DEF carried forward 5.7 mil. DKK from 2003.
The reduction in expenditure in 2003 was primarily due to the fact that the establishment of the framework for DEF, such as organisation, strategy and action plans was not completed until 2004. The framework was an important prerequisite for a sensible prioritisa-tion of resources.
The ordinary National Budget grant for 2004 was supplemented with a contribution from the Ministry of Education, making the total amount 18.5 mil. DKK.
Expenses for activities within the action lines came to about 23.3 mil. DKK. The greater part of the funding went on action lines System architecture and E-publishing and was spent on the activities described elsewhere in the report.
The majority of the projects approved in 2004 will be completed in 2005. The figures therefore to a great extent reflect funding for projects that are carried out in 2005.
Much of the work of the DEF secretariat consists of negotiating, purchasing and administrating licensed material on behalf of libraries and other institutions. In 2004 the turnover in this area was about 75 mil. DKK. As the material is purchased with institutional means, these do not appear in the closing statement.

The figure shows number of queries in the database Web of Science distributed on participating institutions, counted monthly from 2001-2004. Again the figures show a marked increase in the use of this license. For 2002 the figures from June, July, August and Sep-tember are missing.
