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

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

15 editions published between 1950 and 1975 in English and Undetermined and held by 647 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.

Computer listing of a reserve collection by B Gallivan( Book )

6 editions published in 1972 in English and held by 108 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The computer-aided listing system developed for the short loan or reserve collection at the University of Lancaster should be applicable to other libraries. Designed for simplicity of operation, the system performs the following functions: (1) provides a master record of all books in the reserve collection at any given time, (2) facilitates the inclusion of additional volumes in the collection, (3) indicates when volumes should be withdrawn from the collection, (4) provides an author catalog of all volumes in the collection, (5) provides a catalog of the collection arranged by the course for which the volume is recommended reading, and (6) provides the teacher who recommended a volume with a record of the number of times it was used while it was held in the reserve collection. Flow charts and listings of the programs are included. (Dgc)

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

14 editions published between 1968 and 1970 in English and held by 81 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)

Information and information systems by Michael Keeble Buckland( Book )

10 editions published between 1991 and 1995 in English and held by 22 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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'
