    • 2. 100 into 2 won’t go
    • 3. Teaching with a set text
      Problems of access OR can we hope to satisfy student demand for access to books?
    • 4. What do you think is the maximum number of students that one copy of a 7 day loan textbook could reach in one semester?
      15
      25
      45
    • 5. How many students is one 7-day loan textbook likely to service in a semester?
      Basedon
      • assignment on topic covered by textbook due at end of week 10
      • 6. students not aware of reading list till day 5 of semester
      • 7. students willing to read the book in an early week of semester and make any notes needed in that week, with no further access except perhaps to a 1 day or 4 hour loan copy …
    • Best case scenario
      Day 5 book issued to student 1
      Day 12 due back (Student 2 reserves in this first week) Book is returned on time
      Day 13 reservation staff deal with book and place note on catalogue
      Email to Student 2 generated overnight 
      Day 14 Student 2 receives email and collects book 
      Day 21 Student 2 returns book
      Day 22 staff deal with reservation 
      Day 23 Student 3 collects book  
      Day 30 student 3 returns book
      And so on until
      Day 68 Student 8 picks up book
    • 8. Worst case scenario
      Day 29 staff deal with book
      Day 37 – Student 3 picks up book on last possible day
      Day 44 Student 3 returns book
      Day 45 staff deal with book
      Day 53 –Student 4 does not pick up book until last possible day
      Day 60 Student 4 returns book
      Day 61 Staff deal with book
      Day 69 Student 5 picks up book on last possible day
      Day 5 book issued to student 1
      Day 12 due back (Student 2 reserves in this first week) Book is returned on time
      Day 13 reservation staff deal with book and place note on catalogue
      Email to Student 2 generated overnight 
      Day 14 Student 2 receives email but collects book on last possible day – Day 21
      Day 28 Student 2 brings back book
    • 9. Seems unlikely?
      What about part-time students who only attend once a week?
      What about when the due date is a Friday? – in practice with a skeleton staff at weekends, the reservation will not be dealt with until Monday
      What about students who do not return the book on the due date? Many seem willing to regard a fine as a rental payment
      In practice greatest demand for books 2-3 weeks before assignment due date
    • 10. Collection development
      Planned or happenstance?
      Reactive or proactive
      Print/electronic balance
    • 11. For a book order categorised as “non-urgent “ how long do you think it normally takes from ordering for the book to reach the library shelves?
      20 working days
      50 working days
      70 working days
