Improving Return on Investment: A Proposal for Allocating the Book Budget.
Carrigan, Dennis P.
Journal of Academic Librarianship, v18 n5 p292-97 Nov 1992
Discussion of allocation of library acquisitions budgets, especially for monographs, focuses on the proportional use statistic (i.e., a value that compares circulation and holdings in a subject area). Topics addressed include economics; benefits that libraries provide; use of the collection by patrons; computers as aids to resource allocation; monitoring journal use; and electronic information.
