"Streamlining Library Services provides information on how to diagnose problem areas using such tools as Pareto and fishbone charts; use brainstorming; organize a work-flow study; and build and present cost studies. Special emphasis is placed on activities that should occur after the analysis is concluded, including data analysis, study results, and making recommendations to management. Guidelines are provided for managers and staff as they strive to streamline activities. Topics include implementation issues and strategies that must be addressed as new workflows and services are introduced, and organizational change issues and strategies for building staff support toward change."--Jacket
Improving access to library resources: the influence of organization of library collections, and of user attitudes toward innovative services by Richard M Dougherty( Book )

13 editions published in 1974 in English and Polish and held by 414 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An investigation was conducted to probe faculty attitudes toward library effectiveness, to measure the effect on these attitudes of the dispersion of relevant resources in a system of departmental libraries around the campus, and to determine if a document delivery system produced changes in user attitudes toward the library. Studies were conducted at Syracuse University (su) and Ohio State University (osu), the latter having a new document delivery service. At su, interviews were conducted with a random sample of faculty members; other techniques, such as subject interest profiling, shelf list location counts and distance measurements, were used to gauge user and library effectiveness. At osu, known users of the document delivery service were interviewed. The investigators found that, while a department library structure may well have impeded an individual's access to all relevant materials, attitudes of users of branch libraries were generally more positive toward the library as a source of information than attitudes of central library users. The small sample of faculty studied at osu precluded a generalizable evaluation of the document delivery service, but it was felt that such a service increased user access to and satisfaction with the library.
