Public library service equal to the challenge of California; a report to the State librarian. California statewide survey of public library service by Lowell A Martin( Book )

12 editions published between 1963 and 1965 in English and held by 126 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study of public library service in california examines its development and resources, recommends goals to be achieved in order to meet present and emerging needs, suggests a program of development, and outlines costs of the program. Conducted in 1965, information for this study was obtained from 1963-64 public library statistics gathered by the california state library, a questionnaire sent to libraries, title checklists, field visits, and an examination of local planning studies. Public library development, the current situation, the role of the state library, and efforts to move to a statewide library system were analyzed, while school and research library service were considered secondarily. It was concluded that california was not adequately carrying out the kind of public library program outlined in its own policy and needed by its people. A suggested program for development is presented in detail. Its essential recommendations include--(1) a coordinated plan for public library development on a statewide basis, (2) clarification of the role of the state level of government in library activities, and (3) a substantial increase in the amount of money for the library program, bringing expenditures up to approximately one percent of public expenditures and one-twentieth the sum spent on schools. Appended is a bibliography of 48 recent studies of california public library service, the questionnaire used, the field visit observation schedule and libraries visited, and the title checklists.

Libraries for the people of New Jersey; or, Knowledge for all by New Jersey Library Association( Book )

6 editions published in 1964 in English and German and held by 86 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

During the two years of work that preceded this report, six subcommittees of the New Jersey Library Association Library Development Committee carried out a series of investigations into the status of different aspects of New Jersey libraries of all types, and a series of monthly Committee meetings were held during which standards for library service to New Jersey readers were set and principles for an over-all state plan were developed. Further studies of New Jersey library collections and testing of the standards were carried out by a staff at the Graduate School of Library Service, Rutgers University, with assistance from the State Library staff. Each sub-committee was also requested to reconsider its report in the light of new data and the developing plans for the state. In addition, a consultant spent two months visiting selected libraries. Based on the information from these activities, it is concluded that three-fourths of New Jersey residents do not have access to printed materials and library services to meet their full educational and informational needs. The basic recommendations are that New Jersey must develop a coordinated network of library service over the state, and adequate financial support must come from both local sources of revenue and the state government. A specific program for library development is outlined in this report. (Author/JB)
