On-line public access to library bibliographic data bases : developments, issues and priorities : final report to the Council on Library Resources by Neal K Kaske( Book )

12 editions published in 1980 in English and held by 50 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report describes project activities designed to identify the critical issues and problems in designing and developing library bibliographic retrieval systems for direct patron use. The results of a survey, an issues analysis paper, and a working session indicate four priority areas for study and action: user and use characteristics, interface characteristics, the library environment, and the computing environment. Recommendations made by the working session participants highlight the consensus of their concerns--the analysis of user requirements and behavior, the monitoring of existing public access systems, the development of materials for cost management, and the development of distributed computing and system links. A summary and analysis of participant developed definitions of an online catalog, a summary of existing and developing systems, and detailed tabulations are appended

A report on the Moffitt Undergraduate Library book theft study by Neal K Kaske( Book )

5 editions published in 1975 in English and Undetermined and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A study was conducted at the Moffitt Undergraduate Library of the University of California at Berkeley to determine the extent and the cost of book losses due to theft and to determine the cost-effectiveness of book security systems. A sample inventory was taken and the theft rate (13.7%) was statistically derived. The rate of loss was translated into a cost figure, projected over time, and compared with the cost of book security systems. It was shown that the cost of installing and operating a security system was far less than the projected cost of book thefts. (Emh)

A report on the level and rate of book theft from the main stacks of the Doe Library at the University of California, Berkeley by Neal K Kaske( Book )

5 editions published between 1977 and 1979 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In order to determine the extent of loss due to theft of books and bound journals from the main stacks of Doe Library, three types of inventories were conducted: a volume count, an item-by-item inventory of the D-classed materials, and three sample inventories. Depending on certain assumptions, the results show that losses could range as high as 4.48 percent and that there is strong evidence of an increasing rate of theft. Recommendations for improving methodology in a proposed follow-up to this study are provided, as well as tables presenting the collected data. Appended are the results of the loan department service survey, a draft proposal for measuring the level of theft from the main stacks of Doe Library, and the code book for those who desire to obtain in machine-readable form the data collected in the sample inventories.

A study of book detection systems effectiveness and the levels of missing materials at the University of California, Berkeley by Neal K Kaske( Book )

2 editions published between 1978 and 1979 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A number of sample inventories were conducted to measure the effectiveness of the Tattle-Tape book detection systems used in the Moffitt Undergraduate Library and the General Reference Services area of Doe Library, and to establish baseline data for missing materials in four branch libraries (Education-Psychology, Engineering, Environmental Design, Graduate Social Sciences). The utilization made of these collections was also assessed, and additional useful information regarding missing materials from these and other collections was gathered. Data tables present the levels of missing materials for each collection studied, profiles of each collection, collection utilization statistics, and specific inventories of each collection. Appended are the code book for the Statistical Package for Social Sciences (spss), which was used to analyze the data; search forms for each branch; instructions for diagnostics and searchers; the inventory coding form and code book for Education-Psychology; the 1974 inventory of the Moffitt Library; the 1976 and 1977 inventories of the General Reference Services collection at Doe Library; and a task chart and schedules for the project.

A new catalog : some ideas on its purpose, form, cost, and planning for it by Neal K Kaske( Book )

4 editions published in 1979 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ideas and methods for improving library service through changes in library catalogs are presented and discussed. These ideas and methods are in four basic areas: (1) methods for evaluating a library's current catalog(s); (2) costing different forms of the catalog; (3) examining the effects on an individual library's catalog(s) of Anglo-American Cataloging Rules ii (aacr ii) and the closing of its catalog by the Library of Congress (lc); (4) managing and planning for the changes resulting from aacr ii, closing of the lc catalog, and changing the form of catalogs in individual libraries. Examples of all the methods are provided. (Author/JD)

Analysis of reference statistics reported in 1977 library general information survey by Neal K Kaske( Book )

3 editions published in 1980 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Analysis of data collected from 3,000 academic libraries by the 1977 Library General Information Surveys reveals that library operating budgets, institutional enrollment, and library circulation are the best predictors of reference and directional transactions. Fifty-five percent of the transactions at reference service points are directional, while the remainder are reference transactions; university libraries report significantly higher numbers of transactions than either 4-year or 2-year colleges; and publicly controlled colleges report greater numbers than private institutions. Similarly, reference and directional transactions vary with total operating budget, collection and staff size, and enrollment. The picture is complicated, however, by intervariable relationships; E.G., university libraries tend to have larger operating budgets, staff, and collections. Under these conditions, regression analysis is a better procedure to predict the number of reference and directional transactions. (Author/RAA)
