Circulation Policies for External Users: A Comparative Study of Public Urban Research Institutions
Weare, William H., Jr.; Stevenson, Matthew
Journal of Access Services, v9 n3 p111-133 2012
This article is a study of the policies that govern the use of the university library by external users at Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis (IUPUI) and 12 peer institutions used by IUPUI for comparative purposes. A search of each institution's Web site was conducted as well as interviews with circulation librarians and managers. Although it was useful to learn of common practices, it was especially beneficial to learn about policies that differed substantially from those in place at comparable institutions. Creative solutions developed to address problems at other libraries can be used to influence policy development. (Contains 8 figures.)
