The individual library calculator estimates the staff cost savings possible when your library implements NCIP between your circulation and interlibrary loan systems. This calculator asks you to enter the hourly rate or average hourly rate, the number of transactions processed, and the number of minutes to process one request. It is recommended that you include benefits in the hourly rate when using this calculator. The calculator assumes a 50 percent savings in staff time when using NCIP.
Alternatively, you can use the Statewide Calculator.
Auto-Graphics, Inc. provides the NCIP Savings Calculator (“Cost Savings Calculator”) as a service to help librarians in analyzing potential staff cost savings when implementing NCIP. The cost savings tool provides estimates. These estimates are not a guarantee of cost savings for individual libraries or on a statewide basis. A number of other factors may affect your actual savings, and, thus, your actual savings may differ from the estimates.
