Working from the premise that for any given periodical title there is some frequency of use at which it becomes cheaper for a library to acquire the publication than to borrow it, this report presents a mathematical model for estimating the costs of options associated with acquiring periodicals. Cost elements included in the model are initial cost, annual recurring cost, internal use cost, internal borrowing cost, external borrowing cost, storage cost, disposition (weeding) cost, and subscription cost. The report shows how, given these variables, the model can determine the crossover or breakeven point at which the cost of borrowing equals the cost of owning. Appendices include a detailed derivation of the cost model and the associated computer program written in apl, details concerning the cost surveys, and results generated from the model helpful in answering questions concerning the acquisition, maintenance, and discarding of back issues of periodicals.
