Possible Model Based on the Carnegie Commission Groupings. Working Paper, ACRL Ad Hoc Committee to Revise the 1959 "Standards for College Libraries".
Perkins, David L.
Statistical data were examined to see the number of library volumes in four types of colleges as defined by the Carnegie Commission. These were comprehensive universities and colleges I and II and liberal arts colleges I and II. Statistically significant differences were found between liberal arts colleges I and II, but this was not so for comprehensive universities and colleges I and II. However, when sub-groupings based on enrollments were devised, significant differences did appear. A table of statistical data is included, and two methods for counting microform volumes are explained. (LS)
