Abstract: Background. Power law distributions have been found in many contexts, both natural and social. This study examines one way of applying the power law distribution to characterize the breadth and accessibility of library collections. Objectives. The collections of three libraries were analyzed for evidence of power law distributions with regard to the number of copies per title.
