Title
Where do all the good books go? : geographic information systems and the local library
Source
Australian library journal. 42(1993) no.4, S.241-249

Abstract
One of the problems in assessing the success of a local library in meeting the needs of a local community has been that of visualising where its readers live. The library data file listing borrowers will have as one of its items the borrower's address and in smaller communities the librarian may have some idea as to whether or not demand for the library's services were evenly distributed. In larger communities this would be more difficult. This paper describes the use of a geographic information system to use the addresses in borrower database of the Armidale City Public Library to map the spatial distribution of its borrowers. Using this technique it is possible to identify areas of high and low use.
