Destruction of Knowledge: A Study of Journal Mutilation at a Large University Library.
Constantinou, Constantia
College & Research Libraries, v56 n6 p497-507 Nov 1995
A study of 1264 incidents of journal mutilation at New York University indicates no relationship between the availability of indexing and abstracting services on CD-ROM databases and mutilation. Recommends posting warnings; raising awareness; providing adequate photocopiers, change, and vendor card machines; announcing closing time; encouraging adequate numbers of reserve readings; encouraging damage reporting; and involving librarians in maintenance and review.
