Periodicals for the Asking: A Plan for a Periodicals Network; A Survey Report of Five California Counties Made for the 49-99 Cooperative Library System.
Holt, Raymond M.
The public, academic and special libraries of the five-county area centering on Stockton, California have established the need for improving access to periodicals. In an attempt to meet this need, (1) the periodical holdings of the participating libraries were interfiled and studied, and (2) policies and procedures concerning periodical selection, processing, use and retention were analyzed through a questionnaire. The study revealed that the combined periodical resources of the area are much richer than those of any one library or group of libraries. As a result, development of a cooperative periodicals network is proposed. The organization, technical processes and finances involved in such a network are discussed. (SJ)
