Description/Abstract

This article points to the rising cost of books that occurred in the early 1980s and its affects on library budgets. The costs made it so that book acquisitions, essential for collection development, plummeted. This necessitated other sources of funding, such as the creation of "friends of the library" groups, such as the Library Associates of Syracuse University.
