Summary

The South Central Research Library Council was asked if the services of the Bibliographic and Reference Center, a subsidiary of the Council, located at the Cornell University Libraries could be extended to libraries outside its region. To date, the Center has been handling a limited number of requests from non-member libraries without interfering with the quality of its service or the turn-about time promised to the member libraries in SCRLC. However, a question did arise regarding its ability to search bulk requests for five major university libraries in FAUL (Five Associated University Libraries) with the present staff of 2 1/2 (1 professional; 1 1/2 clerical). In order to determine the size of the load which the staff can handle and in order to arrive at a price for service to non-member libraries, a time/cost study was made which is described in this report. The results of the study indicate that the Center staff can search for other institutions with its present manpower. The recommended charge per search is $0.50 for non-member libraries. (Author/SJ)
