ABSTRACT

Small libraries, with their insufficient quantities of materials and lack of diversity within the collection compared to larger general public libraries, may need to be assessed and develop collections based on empirical analysis. This study suggests a method for collection evaluation with other cases analyzing ILL (interlibrary loan) data, which is especially heavy in Small libraries in addition to the holdings and circulation data that are traditionally used in collection development. Collecting and analyzing materials proceeded from 14 Small libraries which operate ILL in a city and tried to figure out features of each library comparing collection statistics with usage statistics including circulation and interlibrary loans. It also identified subject areas heavily used in a Small library, based on the analysis of collection and usage statistics, for the purpose of formulating future policy.
