Development of a responsive library acquisitions formula : final report by Glyn T Evans( Book )

7 editions published in 1978 in English and held by 88 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The major accomplishments in the development of a management system for academic library collection development were (1) the development of translation tables which express hegis (Higher Education General Information Survey) taxonomy terms as sets of lc (Library of Congress) class numbers; (2) the use of these tables to compare library acquisition, institutional administrative data, and book publishing data, and to treat them as components of a library management system; (3) the development of computer programs to build and maintain the tables, isolate and analyze the data, and prepare a series of reports which together comprise the library management information system; and (4) the establishment of a process by which libraries and institutions can analyze their data. The attempt to develop quantitative components which would be included in a proposed acquisition formula failed, although the structure of the formula appears to be validated. Appendices present the modified hegis taxonomy, a list of subject specialists who compiled tables, instructions for the assignment of lc classification numbers, instructions for proofreading lc/hegis tables, an example of an lc/hegis conversion table, and the proposed suny (State of New York) formula for current acquisitions.

Collection development analysis using OCLC archival tapes : final report by Glyn T Evans( Book )

8 editions published in 1977 in English and held by 41 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The purpose of this project is to develop a set of computer programs to perform a variety of collection development analyses on the machine-readable cataloging (marc) records that are produced as a byproduct of use of the online cataloging subsystem of the Ohio College Library System (oclc), and made available through the oclc Distribution Tape Service. To test the programs, a tape of 32,138 oclc/marc records representing the combined online cataloging of four academic institutions over a 12-week period beginning January 10, 1977 are analyzed. The results are evaluated by the project advisory group composed of representatives from the four institutions, and the programs are evaluated by a program design consultant. The project demonstrates that valuable and important management information about a library collection development program can be derived from oclc/marc records. (Author)

Materials transfer : a report of a pilot document delivery service, November 1969-June 1970 by Elizabeth Pan( Book )

2 editions published in 1971 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The purpose of the faul Technical Memoranda (ftm) series is to disseminate quickly to librarians and information scientist the objectives, methods, procedures, analyses, conclusions, and recommendations relating to the performance of small projects in applied research. This report is an account of a study to develop a document delivery service between the Five Associated University Libraries (faul). The approach and activities of the Access Committee and the faul Central staff about materials and people movement among the libraries during the 1969-70 academic year are described. The primary objective of the experiment was to measure and compare the transportation modes under consideration in terms of speed, cost per pound and predictability. The results are presented in tables. An appendix summarizes the usage and costs of the service. The recommendation that the pilot system be extended from June 1970 until January 31, 1971 was followed, however, all the data requested in the recommendation were not collected and was not incorporated into the report.
