The availability of print materials is an important issue that takes one form in a proliferation of items lost and missing from library collections. The service impact is a matter of direct concern to staff responsible for circulation. This essay discusses availability issues in the collections of the College-Conservatory of Music Library (CCM Library) at the University of Cincinnati. It takes the form of an ongoing case study, i.e. a description and evaluation of management responses to a specific set of availability problems.
