The Past and Likely Future of 58 Research Libraries, 1951-1980: A Statistical Study of Growth and Change, 1971-72 (Ninth) Issue.
Dunn, Oliver C.; And Others
The data collected for this report can be divided into three segments: a 14-year collection, 1950-51 through 1963-64, on which analyses were performed and the original predictions generated; a six-year follow-up stage, beginning in 1964-65; a twenty-year collection, 1950-51 through 1969-70, from which new predictions were generated; and a follow-up stage beginning in 1969-70. The more current figures are reported in this volume. For each of the 58 libraries surveyed, the following statistics are reported in graph and tabular form: volumes held in the collection, volumes added to the collection money, expended for materials and binding; salaries and wages expenditures, professional staff size, non-professional staff size, total library operating expenditures, and (when available) the total enrollment statistic which is descriptive of the university of which each library is a part is included. Analyses are grouped into three categories: descriptions of the past and predictions of the future of several varieties of "composite" research libraries, the rank or standing of the individual libraries in respect to each of several statistics for the last six years, and the year-by-year intercorrelations among pairs of statistics which describe either the individual library or its parent university.
