Optimizing Library Staffing Profiles within State Guidelines to Accommodate Peak Demands: Radford University Library Staffing Report.
Heath, Fred; Lewis, Gary
This study determines the periods of peak demands on library services in the Radford University Library, establishes staffing profiles to meet these demands, and projects changes in staffing levels which may in the future modify the library's service capabilities. It is divided into three parts, the first of which applies a data analysis of library use statistics to staffing needs, critically examining current staffing patterns and making recommendations. The second section projects current staffing levels into steady state using both the current state staffing formula and its likely successor, while the third discusses the implications of using the State University of New York (SUNY) public services staffing formula, and offers conclusions and recommendations based on the findings detailed in the first two sections. Attached are the State Council of Higher Education for Virginia (SCHEV) enrollment projections, Radford College enrollment projections, in appendix from the state budget manual, and the Library Advisory Committee report summary.
