The Economic Behavior of Academic Research Libraries: Toward a Theory.
Liu, Lewis G.
Library Trends, v51 n3 p277-92 Win 2003
Examines the economic behavior of academic research libraries, arguing that academic research libraries seek to maximize universities' utility by expanding library collections. Findings are consistent with those from a previous study using a different ranking system and sample data and reconfirm that library collections contribute significantly to prestige of universities.
