Shelf Space Projection Survey.
Wittenborg, Karen; Camp, John F.
This study of the present and projected space requirements for book and periodical collections of the State University of New York Libraries, excluding community colleges, is based on the assumptions that the annual rate of acquisitions and the present space dedicated to book and periodical shelving remain constant. The survey questionnaire requested information on the linear measure of standing or planned shelving and the number of completely empty shelves, as well as the figures on holding provided to HEGIS. Data gathered and projections based on them are presented in tables: (1) linear feet of shelving, estimated holdings, present volumes per foot, additional capacity, and date of full capacity for each respondent; (2) estimated dates of full capacity; and (3) average number of volumes per foot shelved on filled or partially filled shelves.
