Drake, Miriam A.
A study of the Purdue University Libraries was conducted to help allocate costs by user group and academic department. A circulation survey was taken to determine user identification. The sampling included reserve material used in the library, materials borrowed overnight or longer, and use of photocopy service. Copies of transaction cards were made and sent to data processing to be categorized by level, department, and library location. Results of the study were compiled in six statistical tables which indicate the number of loans by location, level of user, and school and department. (Author/DS)
