A Selective Stratistical Study of Transaction Activity in a Large On-Line Automated Circulation System. Final Report.
Guthrie, Gerry D.
The objective of this study was to provide the library community with basic statistical data from on-line activity in the Ohio State University Libraries' Circulation System. Over 1.6 million archive records in the circulation system for 1972 were investigated to produce subject reports of circulation activity, activity reports by collection location, listings of material for highly active titles, and an activity report on a random sample of titles taken from the National Lending Library. Requests were analyzed, computer programs were created to process the data, and the reports were reproduced in the form of data to be used by librarians and library administrators. Most of the data collected on high volume titles is omitted from this version of the report. (CH/PF)
