Title: The short loan library system at the Australian National University : a study of the short loan service in the J.B. Chifley Library building

Description: 
The Short Loan section in the J.B. Chifley Library Building serves staff and students in the Faculties of Arts, Asian Studies, Economics and Science. Although its collection represents only a very small proportion of the total stock of the ANU Library system, it is viewed by its users as a significant component of the University's library service. During 1979, 39 percent of all loans from the Chifley Library building were reported to be from Short Loan. In the same period, academic staff submitted 793 lists of items for inclusion in Short Loan. An effective Short Loan system, together with the availability of text-books prescribed for a course unit, may well be a necessary component of a teaching program and provide essential resources for student learning in a course unit.
