A Methodology for Decision-Making in Serials.
Increasing periodical prices are creating imbalances in library budgets. A study at Kearney State College was undertaken in 1976 to show that it is possible to predict the effect on the budget of any decision to add or drop subscriptions. Periodical lists were divided into departmental subscriptions which were circulated among faculty for input. This list allowed analysis of the effect yearly department subscriptions would have on a budget over a five year period. Formulas used for the analysis are included as are projected price increases through 1980. (AP)
