Feasibility of Cooperative Collecting of Exotic Foreign Language Serial Titles Among Health Sciences Libraries in California.
Gregor, Dorothy
The feasibility of developing cooperative arrangements for sharing exotic foreign language serial titles among the health sciences libraries of California was investigated. Preliminary circulation counts indicated that 74 percent of the 77 titles counted had circulated twice a year or less and that the health sciences libraries do maintain multiple subscriptions to those titles. Because the National Library of Medicine is encouraging cooperative programs among health sciences libraries and because the libraries represented in this study now have access to an on-line serials data base to aid in the implementation of such arrangements, there exist the incentive and the means to initiate some cooperative arrangements. The study results indicate that exotic foreign language serials might be a useful category with which to begin. Some particular titles are suggested for consideration. (Author/DGC)
