Limits of Local Self Sufficiency.
Chapin, Richard E.
Since bibliographic services cannot be provided individually, it is this that offers the greatest potential for networking. This paper is concerned with the degree of success that libraries have in providing physical access to materials on the local level. Libraries do provide from their collections a large percent of items requested. If bibliographic access to collections were improved, then it is likely that local libraries would become even more self sufficient than they are today.
