Use of the Library Reserve Collection at DePauw University.
Hardesty, Larry
Undertaken to determine if the pattern of use of library reserve collections found at other college libraries continues to exist at DePauw, this study found that approximately 40 percent of all the reserve collection items never circulated during the entire semester, and that 33 percent of the collection circulated only one to five times during that period. It is suggested that librarians examine their reserve collections to reduce the amount of time and effort expended on them, and to prevent them from discouraging more extensive use of the library. Statistical tables and references are provided. (FM)
