The University and the Library Collection: Errors of Inclusion and Exclusion

  • David Edgar Jones
From the journal

A usage-based categorisation of the library collection, in both print and electronic formats, into four categories is proposed. The concept of errors of inclusion and exclusion is applied to the collection and this forms the basis of a model of the relationship between the university and the collection. The model is based upon a theoretical profile of both the university and the collection. This reveals the problematic nature of the relationship between library and university in terms of the ability of the library to provide the required resources.
