Academic Library Materials: Budgeting and Allocation (A Review of the Literature).
Shirk, Gary M.
This literature review focuses on methods for determining collection development requirements of a university library. Five criteria were used in the selection of titles for review: immediate relevance to university library collections and allocations; degree of emphasis on empirical methodologies; publication dates within the last 10 to 15 years; ease of access; and indexing in "Library Literature." Consideration of each of the following topics includes a summary of relevant thought and indicates the appropriate citation in the bibliography: Allocation by Formula; Selectivity, Adequacy and Collection Evaluation; Formula Factors; and Efficiency/Equity.
