About the Edition

A survey of non-circulating books was conducted at Long Beach (California) Public Library and Information Center between August 1987 and February 1989. Two computer lists were compared - one for books that had not circulated between 1981-87 (generated as one list) and one for books that had not been checked out between 1987-88. Data revealed that 8 percent of the books that were supposed to be on the library shelves were missing. This report discusses the methodology used and looks at the parameters that could account for the missing books - errors (both human and machine) and theft.

In her book Managing Overdues (New York: Neal-Schuman), Patsy J. Hansel makes some leaps from surveys she did to posit a national “overdue rate” of.7% pre-automation and.4% for post-automation to suggest a national loss of million items, or $ million at a rate of $20 per book. The number of items was based on NCES. A great resource for finding what book your student should read next. Image Collection Consists of more than 1 million images, including a wide array of photos and maps, with an emphasis on world news and events - including contemporary and historical photos of people, places and the natural world.

This campaign, originally an idea of Long Beach evacuee, Jean Sneed, and the town librarian of Polk County, was designed to remake history (“The Long Beach Public Library traces it beginning to when a library was named for Mrs. Garland Ferguson, who donated books to help start it.”), preceded all expectations and was a huge success.

In , the Long Beach Public Library Foundation began with a mission to provide support to enhance Long Beach Public Libraries and encourage literacy and education for all members of the community. We carry that vision with us to this day. For example, in a typical municipal library, public access areas may constitute 80% or more of the total facility. In contrast are academic and private libraries and archives, where areas not open to the public (e.g., book stacks and storage areas) may comprise a substantial part of the overall facility.
