State Level Library Acquisitions Resource Allocation Model. AIR Forum 1980 Paper. Forum 1980 Paper.
Geiger, Joseph J.; Feagler, Virginia M.
A state-level library acquisitions model is described, and the results of a two-year implementation by Colorado appropriating agencies are analyzed. The model was developed to address two problems: (1) determining library collection standards for each campus; and (2) presenting campus acquisition needs in a way that differentiated campus roles and needs. It employs a simultaneous quantitative (two-digit) approximation of campus role and mission with respect to the roles and missions of all other campuses in the state. Acquisition costs are determined, and a process is developed for full or partial funding of each campus' need without disrupting the overall relative needs of all campuses. State legislative response is noted. (Author)
