An Evaluation of the Closed Reserve at St. Cloud State College: A Follow-up Study.
Opgrand, Harold J.
A survey of faculty and student usage of the reserve book collection at St. Cloud State College negated the original hypothesis of the author that the faculty helps to promote college library objectives by sagacious selection of reserve materials. Ideally, a reserve book collection should be made up of those books which are essential to the study of the particular subject, and of which there is an insufficient supply to meet the demands of the students using the regular charge out system. If the reserve librarian were able to communicate this idea to faculty members, the problems associated with the closed reserve would be greatly alleviated. (Author/SJ)
