Circulation Policy in Academic, Public, and School Libraries, by Sheila S. Intner (228 pages, March 1987), contains the results of a survey of libraries in 1983 to find out the types of borrowing they allow and the procedures by which materials circulate.

Two chapters are devoted to academic libraries: one on circulation policies, and another on responses to the questionnaire.
