We all know that when a collection gets to a certain point of "fullness" 
it begins to be very time consuming to add new material. However, does 
anyone know of a publication that addresses this? Something like "when a 
collection approaches 90% of capacity, the effort required to add new 
material, in terms of the amount of shifting that is required, becomes 
suboptimal."  Is there anything citable like that out there?

I would be most grateful if anyone can point me to something like that.

Thanks, and see you all in Austin (I hope).
