This calculator worksheet is adapted from the Library Use Calculator of the University of Hawaii at Manoa Library, which was in turn adapted from the downloadable spreadsheet, originally provided by the Massachusetts Library Association and then adapted for the web by Chelmsford Public Library. Maine State library then added extra accessibility coding and reformatting for ease of reading online. This spreadsheet requires Microsoft Excel, the Excel Viewer, or similar spreadsheet software.
An explanation of the values used can be found at the Calculator Explanation page.
