Approval Plans: A Survey.
DeVolder, Arthur L.
In order to gain information about what experiences limited-budget libraries have had with approval plans, a questionnaire was drafted to survey these libraries. The results of the questionnaire are presented in this paper. Twenty-four of the thirty-one libraries surveyed, responded. Responses to each of the questions asked are presented. In general it was apparent that all acquisitions librarians have to abide by the limitations of their institutions and that they are subject to control by the faculty. Many were concerned with the tie-in with one dealer, and they wished more jobbers would participate in approval plans. As a result of the survey and other factors, it was decided to set up a plan to cover all the areas of the university of New Mexico's curriculum. Preparations to implement the approval plan were completed and the plan was put into operation. The plan which has been in operation for seven months appears to be effective. (Author/NH)
