Best-Sellers in Academic Libraries.
Crawford, Gregory A.; Harris, Matthew
College & Research Libraries, v62 n3 p216-25 May 2001
A selection of academic libraries was studied to examine ownership of best-sellers from 1940 to 1990. The trend is to keep a higher percentage of older best-sellers in fiction than newer ones. Nonfiction appears to be more sporadic but still follows this trend. Findings indicate new collection development policies may be needed to protect important works of fiction and nonfiction. (AEF)
