The Management and Operations of the University of California. Volume I: The Library System of the University of California. Part II: Library Operations


This part of our study touches upon the operations of the library—those functions which are performed to order material, to process it for use, and to make it available to the libraries clientele.

This is an enormous subject, one which we could not treat in great depth. Hence, the words "touches upon", above, are appropriate to the scope of this part of our study.

Nevertheless, we feel that much is of interest in the following pages. Specifically, we believe that we have identified areas of opportunity for improvement, or at least focused attention on some already known to the University. If these opportunities are pursued with vigor, we believe that many of the problems spotlighted could be alleviated rapidly.
