DATA WAS COMPUTERIZED. COMPUTER OUTPUT INCLUDED--(1) A COST ANALYSIS, (2) COST PER STUDENT CREDIT HOUR, (3) PERCENT OF TIME, (4) CREDIT HOUR AND CONTACT HOUR LOAD, AND (5) PERCENT OF TIME ASSIGNED TO INSTRUCTIONAL UNITS. THE COSTS OF VARIOUS ASPECTS OF LIBRARY OPERATION WERE ALSO ANALYZED. THE REPORT CONCLUDED THAT A STUDY OF THIS NATURE SHOULD BE DONE THOROUGHLY THE FIRST TIME AND REPLICATED OFTEN.
