English abstract

Over 1600 reservations of documents made at ISRO Satellite Centre Library during 1982 are analysed in relation to total collection and membership. A representative sample of reservations made for high demand documents are further examined in relation to year of acquisition, year of publication (age) and subject of the document. Results of the analysis and observations are presented with suggestions for better record keeping and feedback for lending system and collection development policy.
