Collection Overlap as a Function of Library Size: A Comparison of American and Canadian Public Libraries.
Davis, Charles H.; Shaw, Debora
Journal of the American Society for Information Science, v30 n1 p19-24 Jan 1979

Strong positive correlation appears between percentage find rate and target library size, with regression analysis suggesting linearity over a wide range of collection sizes. (Author)
