The assessment of use of library stock in university libraries based on class mark is hereby reported. It is aimed at showing that quest for balanced knowledge does not leave gap in resource development. The report shows that faculties' use of resources spread through all class marks. The books used in these libraries for a period of six months were classified and used for these analyses. They were taken from the shelves by the users and before re-shelving the class mark groups were recorded. While chart one shows the spread of the use, it was noticed that books from some call mark groups were not used at the period of this survey. Also it was possible to track records of frequently used materials which could be keyed into the data base preferentially.
