    English: Research was carried out into scientifically reliable and timesaving methods to evaluate the collection of a medium-sized university library with limited financial resources. The evaluation should be executable by subject librarians who do not necessarily have a knowledge of all the subjects under their control. The study was conducted at the Frik Scott Library, a medical branch library of the University of the Orange Free State. During a comprehensive literature search, thirteen evaluation methods were identified. These methods were, as far as possible, tested in the Frik Scott Library. As certain questions arose, a study tour of the United States of America was undertaken to seek solutions at university libraries in that country and to compare techniques. Afterwards the methods employed at the Frik Scott Library were once again critically assessed. Where necessary, adaptations were made accordingly. Only one premise could not be carried out, namely that the evaluation must be scientifically reliable. However, if the recommendations are followed by using several methods, one should come as close as possible to this ideal.
