Redesigning library services : a manifesto by Michael Keeble Buckland( Book )

17 editions published between 1992 and 1997 in English and Japanese and held by 839 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Libraries exist for the benefit of the mind, but they have practical problems coping with the acquisition, storage, and handling of the documents and records with which they deal. Any change in technology that would have a significant effect on the methods available for these procedures could have important consequences for library service. The purpose of this book is to suggest some general bases for planning or to provide a general framework for thinking about future library services in light of changing technologies. Nine chapters address the following: (1) an introduction to the purpose of libraries, foundations of library service, types of libraries, and library users; (2) characteristics of the paper library, its strengths, its weaknesses, and attempts to remedy or compensate for the limitations of the technology of paper; (3) the automated library; (4) implications of the automation of bibliographies and of libraries' technical operations; (5) the rise of electronic documents and the nature of the electronic library; (6) consequences of the rise of the electronic library for collection development; (7) the needs and changing environment of library users; (8) management considerations; and (9) summary and conclusions related to technological change. A list of sources is appended, including electronic sources, bibliographies, reviews, specialized journals, and background material. (Jlb)

Information and information systems by Michael Keeble Buckland( Book )

Michael Buckland offers an examination of information systems that is comparative rather than narrowly technical in approach. With careful attention to different meanings of information, Buckland examines the nature of retrieval-based information systems such as archives, databases, libraries, and museums, and their relationships to their social context.||The introductory material examines difficulties of definition and terminology in relation to information systems. There is a systematic overview of the concepts and processes involved in the provision and use of information systems. Buckland'

An analytical approach to duplication and availability by Michael Keeble Buckland( Book )

As part of a project designed to construct a mathematical model of the operation of an academic library, a research team determined the usefulness of a quantitative approach to making decisions about the number of copies of each item that a university library should provide. Using the reserve collection of the University of Lancaster Library as a basis, a mathematical relationship was established between the number of requests, the length of the loan period, the number of copies, and a standard of service (defined as "immediate availability"). It was found that the Poisson distribution could justifiably be used to relate the average request rate to the number of copies and the degree of availability likely to be achieved. A table was produced which can be used in a predictive manner insofar as the request rate itself can be predicted. A method of estimating the average request rate from incomplete data was also devised. It was concluded that a mathematical relationship between the factors concerned can be established. The chief difficulty lies in predicting the level of demand for library services and, more generally, in understanding the factors which determine it. (Jb)

Library systems engineering an introduction by Michael Keeble Buckland( Book )

2 editions published in 1972 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The application of systems engineering and operations research to the problems of libraries has developed quite strongly during the past five years. The purpose of this paper is to draw attention to this relatively new area. There are serious problems of applying systems engineering to libraries. This is to be expected in the case of a non-profit-making situation where the end product is an intellectual rather than a physical one. Furthermore, although librarians do commonly have an academic orientation, this is usually in the humanities rather than science or engineering. This is quite clearly reflected in library research which commonly includes substantial data collection but no models or hypotheses. Nevertheless, the past few years have seen a significant development in the application of systems engineering to library problems. The achievement, though real, is still quite limited--especially where the behavioral aspects of library use are concerned. There is, in library systems engineering, a need and a challenge.
