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 )

5 editions published between 1963 and 1965 in English and held by 115 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.

Technical information for California business and industry; a report to the California State Librarian by George Schlegel Bonn( Book )

3 editions published in 1966 in English and held by 71 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This examination of library services to business, commerce and industry in California was based on conferences with State Library personnel, discussions with librarians from five major resource libraries, and a study of library resources and needs in nine California cities which included visits to the public libraries and interviews with public and special librarians and patrons from business and industry. The report covers: (1) information needs of business and industry, (2) selection and reference aids in business, technology and science, (3) characteristics and problems of service, (4) foreign language materials, (5) present public, academic and special resources, (6) excerpts and summaries from relevant literature, and (7) conclusions and recommendations for a statewide technical information network. It was found that publicly supported libraries cannot adequately meet the technical information needs of California business and industry which are not served elsewhere. Recommendations for a statewide technical information network suggest three levels of service: local service-contact libraries, subject centers, and research centers which would involve contractual arrangements with major academic libraries. The California State Library should be responsible for coordinating, developing and studying services for the entire network as well as serving as a major special resource center. A bibliography of 32 items is appended. (JB)

Interlibrary cooperation under title III of the Library services and construction act; a preliminary study for the California State Library by Raynard Coe Swank( Book )

3 editions published in 1967 in English and held by 70 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This preliminary exploration of possible approaches in California to implementation of Title III of the Library Services and Construction Act (LSCA) is based on a review of the literature on library cooperation, an examination of existing data on California libraries, and interviews with kay people in the California library field. The report examines: (1) the legislative and professional background of cooperative library systems in California, (2) existing California county and regional library systems, (3) present and proposed cooperative efforts among the several types of libraries, (4) the desirable objectives of such efforts, (5) possible organizational structures and bases of financial support, and (6) avenues of further study and planning. The seven major areas of possible coordination that might be incorporated into Title III projects are communication, bibliographical services, delivery services, reference services, order and catalog processes, collection building, and mechanization. Recommended organizational structure involves three patterns of coordination: (1) geographical or regional systems, (2) systems of special subject libraries, and (3) statewide services by major research libraries and the State Library, involving an extension of the State Library's responsibility to include service to all types of libraries.
