cost analysis: binding vs. microform Wen, Shixing 10 Apr 1998 17:21 UTC

We are trying to compare the cost of maintaining print journals vs. that of
microform subscription. Obviously, the figure of the latter is much easier
to find out. But for the former, there are too many factors to consider,
like shelving space cost, preservation cost, stack maintenance, shelving,
and even air conditioning cost per cubic foot, in addition to binding cost.

Could you give us some advice as how to do such a cost analysis? Or could
you refer us to some case studies in library literature?

Thanks in advance for your help.
