Library networks are becoming increasingly complex public systems. Because of this trend, the management of library networks can perhaps be enhanced by the use of policy analysis models. Within this paper, such a model is briefly reviewed. Three case studies have been performed with this model. The recommendations resulting from these studies are discussed. Special emphasis is placed on what appear to be key ingredients to successfully applying the modeling approach. Further, the management implications of model-based policy analyses are considered.
