The Cost Function and Scale Economies in Academic Research Libraries.
Liu, Lewis G.
Library Trends, v51 n3 p293-311 Win 2003
This empirical research examined scale economies of academic research libraries and developed a total cost function for estimating economies of scale. Suggests that libraries in general, and academic research libraries in particular, are information provision organizations that provide multiproducts and multiservices. Findings indicate that slight economies of scale exist in academic research libraries. (AEF)
