Note: Definitions

Ledger: the highest level of the fund structure hierarchy. Ledgers represent campus and funding source (as defined by library business offices). They combine a large number of summary funds and allocated funds under a single umbrella.  Ledgers have been created for each tub. 

Summary Fund: the middle level(s) of the fund structure hierarchy. There are two levels of Summary funds: Parent (org) and Child (activity.subactivity). Summary funds exist purely for reporting purposes. They do not have money allocated to them and cannot be used to place orders or pay invoices.

Allocated fund: the lowest level of the fund structure hierarchy. Allocated funds have dollars allocated to them, can have orders placed against them, and can be used to pay invoices. Allocated funds may be dedicated to a specific subject area and purchase type, or to a specific endowment or foundation fund.

Finding Funds

All funds are associated with a Ledger. To find a ledger you can search two ways.

Note: All searches filter for Status = Active and Fiscal Period = [Current FY] automatically when you search. You can change these filters after you search.

  • Go to Acquisitions > Acquisitions Infrastructure>Funds and Ledgers
  • Using the search bar (make sure you have selected "Funds") and enter either the Name (such as Divinity) or the Code (ex  DIV is 245). 

This direct search will get you quickly to a known Ledger.

You may perform a general search without including any names or tub codes and results displayed will be all Active Funds in the current fiscal period.   In the left hand bar you can narrow down to all Ledgers (aka Tubs).  We will start with such an open search for the sake of demonstrating the fund structure.



Searching All funds will display results for all active funds and ledgers and summary funds for the current fiscal year. You can use facets in the left side bar to narrow down your search. 


By clicking on Type > Ledgers in the facets, the search results will narrow down to list all active ledgers in the fiscal period and you can scroll through the list of ledgers find the ledger you want to review.
