Rural Bookmobile Service: Efficiency and Effectiveness.
Jacobsen, Brent N.
A data comparison was made between 33 rural libraries in Utah and the essentially rural bookmobile service maintained by the Extension Services Division of the State Library Commission of Utah. The comparison revealed that, in terms of cost per item circulated, bookmobile service was slightly more expensive. Using cost per capita served as a measure, bookmobile service was significantly more expensive. However, the bookmobiles were much more efficient in the amount of use that they obtained from each holding. They were also more effective in the number of volumes circulated per capita. (Author)
