Computer Simulation and Library Management

Journal of Library Administration Volume 16, Number 4, ISSN 0193-0826


Reviews the literature on computer simulation modeling for library management and examines whether simulation is underutilized because the models are too complex and mathematical. Other problems with implementation are considered, including incomplete problem definition, lack of a conceptual framework, system constraints, lack of interaction between managers and researchers, and traditional attitudes.
