Calculations and formulas are presented to help librarians gather statistics for analysis and management of the collection. Using measures of timeliness, relevancy, use percentages, user profiles, and comparisons, librarians can determine in quantitative ways the quality of a library's collection. Step-by-step directions show how to analyze data produced by automated systems, conduct random sampling, evaluate all types of information formats, and estimate the cost of updating the collection.
