Connaway and Lawrence publish on Comparing Library Resource Allocations..., in D-Lib

Lynn Silipigni Connaway & Stephen R. Lawrence have published "Comparing Library Resource Allocations for the Paper and the Digital Library: An Exploratory Study," in the December issue of D-Lib Magazine (V9 n12).

This exploratory study asked eleven Association of Research Libraries (ARL) librarians to identify the resources needed for the transition of an all-paper library to the all-digital library. Although the results cannot be generalized, the study identifies functions and resources associated with the provision of paper and electronic materials that can be used for further investigation of library resource allocations.
