Journal of the American Society for Information Science, v50 n4 p366-79 Apr 1 1999
Compares constant dollar spending on research with constant dollar spending on libraries 1960-1995. Evaluation of the indirect cost policy by which library costs are reimbursed as a function of science grant management suggests it has failed to promote cost-effective research. Evaluation of the impact of various information technologies finds enhancements to dissemination but misconceptions about savings potential. Contains 148 references. (Author/AEF)
