Methods and Procedures for Measuring Patron Use and Cost of Patron Services for the Detroit Metropolitan Library Project.
Nelson Associates, Inc., Washington, DC.
This report is a part of Phase I of the Detroit Metropolitan Library Project and contains suggestions for methods and procedures for Phases II and III of the Project in which patron use and costs of patron services at the Main Library are to be measured. The report includes recommendations for new instruments for measuring patron use and appropriate changes in financial record keeping which should facilitate the determination of true costs of patron services. The recommendations are made in light of the Project's overall objective to study means of bringing the reference and research resources of the Detroit Public Library to all citizens of the six county metropolitan area and to provide a realistic and equitable basis of financial support to the library so that it can effectively accomplish this goal. Methods for the development of a formula for determining cost of patron services appear in Appendix A. Appendix B presents a method for determining place of residence by county of current registrants of the Detroit Public Library. (Author/CC)
