Summary

The purpose of the FAUL Technical Memoranda (FTM) series is to disseminate quickly to librarians and information scientist the objectives, methods, procedures, analyses, conclusions, and recommendations relating to the performance of small projects in applied research. This report is an account of a study to develop a document delivery service between the Five Associated University Libraries (FAUL). The approach and activities of the Access Committee and the FAUL Central staff about materials and people movement among the libraries during the 1969-70 academic year are described. The primary objective of the experiment was to measure and compare the transportation modes under consideration in terms of speed, cost per pound and predictability. The results are presented in tables. An appendix summarizes the usage and costs of the service. The recommendation that the pilot system be extended from June 1970 until January 31, 1971 was followed, however, all the data requested in the recommendation were not collected and was not incorporated into the report.
