North Central Association requirements for number of vols. Wendie Edwards 07 Feb 1996 23:11 UTC

I need your help.  I was in the process of making some more room on the
journal shelves in the library by removing any volumes that we had both
microfiche and bound volumes for.  I put a list of material on the
BACKSERV listserv to see if anyone wanted any of the materials.  I have
since received several requests for material, and had begun to box stuff
up to send out.  Then the library director decides that I probably
shouldn't send any of the material out, because we are still under a
mandate by the North Central Association to reach 100,000 volumes by 1998.
Knowing nothing about this association, I am confused as to whether this
100,000 number should include bound journals at all because I thought it
was referring only to books.  And even if journals should be included,
wouldn't a microfiche volume be equivalent to a bound volume?  If this
makes any sense to anyone, and you think you could shed some light on this
whole situation, I would really appreciate your assistance because my
office is sitting full of boxes of journals waiting to be sent out.

Thanks very much,
