Evaluation of An Approval Plan: Vendor and Publisher Performance.
A study was done at the Purdue University Libraries to identify publishers of interest to Purdue, to characterize the subject areas by type of publisher after library selection, and to evaluate the performance of commercial and university presses. The majority of the document consists of tabular compilations of the data collected in the study. The first table ranks 184 publishers who furnished Purdue with four or more books in a six month period according to the total number of books received (categorized as approval plan books, books ordered by departments, and additional copies of approval plan books ordered). Table II shows the subject areas of the books catalogued during a six month period which were received from either commercial or university publishers. Tables III and IV compare the totals of books received with the claims made, the claimed books received and the claiming time for commercial and university publishers. (JG)
