2. Weare, W. H., Jr., Moffett, P., & Cooper, J. P. (2016). Preparing for renovation: Estimating shelf occupancy to inform decision making regarding the redevelopment of library space. Collection Management, 41(3), 168-181.
4. Evaluation: The article begins with the authors saying they believe these estimations found can be applied across many university libraries. While their findings are interesting, I do not think the numbers can be used for other libraries. They used a rather simple sampling method and collections can differ quite a bit across different universities. However, I do believe it is useful to estimate how much free space there is in the stacks in preparation for repurposing a space.
