Moffitt Undergraduate Library, University of California, Berkeley.
Harlow, Millicent H.
Presented by a library science student at the University of California at Berkeley, this description of Moffitt Undergraduate Library includes financing and budget, the building (physical description), book collection, staff, library technical operations, and user services. The report begins with a framework for the idea of an undergraduate library separate from the graduate collection. Background information is provided about the University of California, its Berkeley campus, and the university libraries. Following an itemization of the library's physical layout are descriptions of the book and reference collections, selection policy, and collection analysis policies. Services examined include reference, circulation, reserve, technical, and such special services as the program for instructing students in the use of the library. A separate section focuses on organization and staff recommendations for the media center. An organizational chart and statistical breakdown of staff illustrate a discussion of library staff, and statistics on annual operating expenditures and library use are presented in tabular form. A report on student opinion of the library, based largely on a program review prepared by a public policy student, is prefaced by student demographic statistics. A summary, library floor plan, and list of sources consulted conclude the report. (SW)
