Developing Standards for Library Expenditures
AbstractThis paper reports the results of a project to use simple and multiple regression to develop standards for evaluating budget proposals of a university library. Based on a seven-year sample of actual expenditure data, ending with the academic year 1964-65, regression equations were developed for each of the five major categories of library expenditures. These equations were tested against the expenditures approved for the academic year 1965-66. Based on this test, useful standards were developed by employing the regression technique. The technique is proposed as a device for coping with the control of complex activities for which direct standard setting is difficult or prohibitively expensive, in institutional, governmental or business organizations.
