A Cost Effectiveness Model for Comparing Various Circulation Systems

Thomas K. Burgess

Abstract


Two models for circulation systems costing are presented. Both the automated and the manual models are based on experience gained in the analysis of circulation services at Washington State University library. Validation tests for the model assumptions are devised and explained. Use of the models for cost effectiveness comparison and for cost prediction are discussed and examples are given showing their application.
