报告:Consortial Book Circulation Patterns: The OCLC-OhioLINK Study

Key highlights from the article include:

。Different types of libraries had similar circulation rates with an average annual circulation rate of 0.11 circulations per book
。Most usage was generated by a relatively small proportion of books: 7.2% of manifestations produced 80% of circulation and over 80% of the manifestations did not circulate in the year observed
。Few books were heavily used but a large proportion of the collection were rarely, if ever, used
。Older books had a much lower circulation rate than new books but they continued to be used and are an essential part of research collections
。Previous use is the best predictor of future use and could effectively help to identify additional books suitable for the depositories
