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

17 editions published between 1992 and 1997 in English and Japanese and held by 835 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'

Systems analysis of a university library : final report on a research project by Michael Keeble Buckland( Book )

20 editions published between 1969 and 1970 in English and held by 202 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The objectives of this study are to ensure that the resources at the disposal of the librarian are deployed in a manner which will effectively contribute to the purposes of the university. User behavior is explored in an attempt to solve the difficulties that arise in library planning and management, such as: (1) the relationship between length of loan period and "idle time," (2) the availability of popular books and (3) the relationship between library usage and academic achievement. Fundamentally related to all this in a university library is the whole area of students' problem-solving behavior. It is clear that the serious study of policy-making and the allocation of resources in a university library must range widely over problems of human behavior and educational research. Seen in this wider context it may be that the most useful contribution of this study is the way which, with further research, it may prove possible to quantitatively relate the day-to-day decisions of the librarian to the academic achievement of the university as a whole.

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

11 editions published between 1968 and 1970 in English and held by 22 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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)
Book availability and the library user by Michael K Buckland( Book )

1 edition published in 1975 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This text focuses on decisions which affect library stock control or the acquisition and management of library materials. The book covers five areas: (1) a definition of the problem; (2) optimal size of library stock; (3) diagnosis of faulty control of book availability; (4) improvement of book availability; and (5) synthesis of theories and discoveries outlined earlier. The main thrust is to relate library functions such as acquisition, duplicating, binding, circulation, and discarding to the needs and behaviors of library users. Since a large amount of the demand for books tends to be concentrated on a small proportion of the library's stock, this emphasis is revealed in the attention devoted to the problems of managing the titles that are in relatively high demand.
