The best gift : a record of the Carnegie libraries in Ontario by Margaret Beckman( Book )

7 editions published in 1984 in English and Undetermined and held by 134 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is a vivid reminder of the early days of library development in Ontario. The beautiful buildings which still grace Ontario towns and villages, as illustrated, are a part of our provincial heritage. By the turn of the century, a public library was perceived as an important element in the civic fabric of almost every Ontario community. However, the introduction of the Carnegie grants for library buildings gave impetus to the Ontario government programme for library development, and provided a focus for increased suport of library services. Rivalry among neighbouring communities to secure a Carngie library heightened this awareness, as did the publicity -- in some instances even controversy -- which surrounded each step of the grant seeking, site selection and plan approval process. As well, the hitherto unexplored story of Carnegie grant process in each community has been examined, and the role of one man, James Bertram, secretary to Andrew Carnegie, is revealed in absorbing detail. Library plans and design elements are also discussed, and the influence of a few architects on the building designs is revealed; the fascinating involvement of Frank Lloyd Wright in the Pembroke Carnegie library building is one such example

Documentation system for the organization of government publications within a university library by Margaret Beckman( Book )

9 editions published between 1968 and 1969 in English and French and held by 35 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The system, designed as a result of this study provides for a separate collection of government publications, with a single country-based notation scheme which makes it possible to display the publications on the shelves in a manner conducive to browsing. The document code number not only establishes the shelf position of each publication but links the actual publication to a unified index scheme which provides access through a variety of data elements--personal and corporate author, title, serial and series title, etc. In addition, this study shows that mechanization or automation is an important environmental factor which should be considered when studying any university library system or subsystem.

Derivation of a simulation model of a university library system by Margaret Beckman( Book )

4 editions published in 1968 in English and held by 19 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Models are one of the tools of operation research which may have applications in the library field. This study is an attempt to establish a simple model for administrative purposes in a university library system. Two measures of a university library system were studied: (1) the cost of adding a volume to the collection and (2) the use of the collection on a per capita basis. The present study requires further analysis prior to computer manipulation and before full-scale models can be developed for solutions to decision-making problems, the development of considerable new data is required.
