A Simulation Model and Data for Library Planning.
Millham, Charles B.
The Library Development Division of the Washington State Library and the Library Futures Planning Task Force developed cost data and a computer simulation model in order to construct a series of alternatives for extending library services to areas of the state now unserved. User needs were assessed, and cost data were developed for mail-order delivery, bookmobiles, and new library facilities. A flow chart of the simulation model was constructed, and the sensitivity of the results of the simulation to changes in data were analyzed. Specific cost data is included for facilities, bookmobiles, maintenance, collections, and staffing. (Author/LS)
