The Duplication of Monograph Holdings in the University of California Library System. Report No. ILR-74-004.
Cooper, William S.; And Others
Cooperative book acquisition plans and improved systems of interlibrary lending are intended to eliminate duplication of library holdings. In order to calculate possible savings, an investigation of how much duplication exists in the libraries on the various campuses of the University of California was made. Estimates were developed for the extent of the overlap of the monograph holdings of the UCLA collection with those of the other southern University of California campuses, and of the monograph holdings of the Berkeley collection with those of the other northern campuses. The historic usage rates of the overlapped portions of the collections also were estimated. The methodology by which these estimates were obtained is quite general and with appropriate modifications should be applicable in investigations of a similar nature in other library systems.
