The Fried Transdisciplinary Model of Technological and Social Organization of the Collection Establishment, Development, Maintenance, and Monitoring Process; An Operational Systems Approach for Diagnosing, Measuring, Evaluating, and Designing Improvements in Library Collection Building Organizational Policies and Practices.
DeHart, Florence E.
Jacob Fried and Paul Molnar developed a model to simulate the interaction between technological change and social interaction which consists of two zones: (1) task requisites; and (2) the corresponding organizational responses. To define task requisites for library collections, it is necessary to identify the dimensions of the problem and the modifications necessary to facilitate the completion of the product; including a clientele survey, definition of collection standards, subject limitations, media formats, availability of materials, selection criteria, and available energy, control policy, and time and space limitations. Each of these components can be assigned a value according to the amount of constraint. The resulting coefficient for task requisites can then be compared to that of the organizational response patterns to determine which policies are warranted. (EMH)
