Book Processing Facility Design.
Sheahan (Drake)-Stewart Dougall, Marketing and Physical Distribution Consultants, New York, NY.
The Association of New York Libraries for Technical Services (ANYLTS) is established to develop and run a centralized book processing facility for the public library systems in New York State. ANYLTS plans to receive book orders from the 22 library systems, transmit orders to publishers, receive the volumes from the publishers, print and attach pockets, print and insert catalog cards and book cards, apply spine labels, overjacket book covers, and ship processed books by library to the library system. The recommended processing operation will require a physical facility containing 18,800 square feet and is estimated to cost $56,640 per year. At a projected rate of $10,000 per man year (1976) and an average work force of 66 employed, labor will cost $660,000 per year. Equipment investment is estimated to be $221,000. The processing operation recommended is a manual system supplemented by two labor-saving mechanical devices. (MF)
