  • The allocation of an academic library s acquisitions funds should con­ tribute to the achievement of the library s goals and objectives. The availability of diverse materials and the varying demands of user needs in a variety of subject disci­ plines may represent a set of conflicting, incommensurate goals. Lexicographic linear goal programming offers an appropriate allocation methodology for detennining an optimal solution with conflicting goals. This article applies this methodology to 90… CONTINUE READING
