An Observation on Shelving Practice
Stevens, Norman D.
Library Journal, 103, 12, 1236, Jun 15 78
The Molesworth Institute conducted a year long experiment on the shelving practices of two academic libraries of comparable size, with similar user populations. Results show that the practice of leaving the middle two shelves empty for future expansion cannot be recommended. Measurements include accumulation of dirt; usage; and incidents of exhibitionism.
