Using a Gravity Model to Predict Circulation in a Public Library System.
Ottensmann, John R.
Library & Information Science Research, v17 n4 p387-402 Fall 1995
Describes the development of a gravity model based upon principles of spatial interaction to predict the circulation of libraries in the Indianapolis-Marion County Public Library (Indiana). The model effectively predicted past circulation figures and was tested by predicting future library circulation, particularly for a new branch library. (Author/LRW)
