Report on a Cost Study of Specific Technical Processing Activities of the California State University and Colleges Libraries.
California State Univ. and Colleges, Los Angeles. Office of the Chancellor.
The California State University and Colleges (CSUC) system consists of 19 institutions located throughout the state. As a prerequisite for library automation an analysis and cost study of technical processing functions was undertaken in all 19 libraries of the system. The purpose of the study was to provide CSUC librarians with accurate cost figures for their own operations as well as a means of comparing costs based on a standardized methodology. The study was to facilitate comparisons among similar functions in several libraries as well as between current manual operations and projected operations in a computerized mode. Four summary sheets are provided for the 19 libraries, namely, a general summary, a unit cost summary, a production unit summary, and a bibliographic search summary. In addition, an activity detail analysis is provided for the participating libraries. This report represents raw unevaluated data and does not reflect total costs of the technical processing operations in the participating libraries. (Author/SJ)
