The 1996 national survey of public libraries and the Internet : progress and issues : final report, July 1996 by John Carlo Bertot( Book )

6 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 457 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This 1996 National Commission on Libraries and Information Science (nclis) survey gathered data from a national sample of public libraries concerning the current level of public library involvement with the Internet. The purpose of this study was to: (1) provide policymakers, researchers, and library professionals with longitudinal data that measured changes in public library Internet involvement since the first survey in 1994; (2) identify costs for public library Internet services; and (3) identify issues and inform the policy debate concerning public library roles in the electronic networked environment. This final report is divided into three sections: Introduction; Study Results; and Progress and Issues. The introduction discusses the Telecommunications Act of 1996 and the Library Services and Construction Act/Library Services and Technology Act; intellectual property and the National Information Infrastructure; and an electronic federal depository library program. The second section discusses study methodology; public library demographics; accessing the Internet; the current state of public library Internet connectivity; Internet uses and public access services; and benefits to connecting to the Internet. The third section focuses on disparities; connectivity versus services; the goal of universal service; quality of network services; the life cycle of public library Internet development; and preparation for the next survey. Appendices include the survey instrument, survey alert, and cover letter, and information about the authors. (Contains 27 references, and 45 figures that present survey data.) (Author/AEF)
Libraries and literacy education : comprehensive survey report by Douglas Zweizig( Book )

9 editions published in 1988 in English and held by 406 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This comprehensive report details the activities of a study which investigated public, public secondary school, community college, academic, state institutional, and state library agencies, in order to: (1) assess the current status of libraries in literacy education; (2) determine an expanded role for libraries in literacy education; and (3) identify library literacy programs that could serve as models. The report contains an overview of the current status of literacy services in libraries based on a literature review (chapter 1); descriptions of the methodology and results of the library surveys, which sought information on the involvement of each type of library in literacy education (chapters 2-6); and eight case studies of model programs (chapter 7). Eight observations based on the findings of the surveys and the case studies conclude the report: (1) library involvement in literacy varies greatly; (2) illiteracy will not be acted on if it is not seen; (3) literacy activities fit into a constellation of library services; (4) library literacy activities fit into a context of community service; (5) literacy services may not be institutionalized in the library; (6) volunteers are key personnel; (7) evaluation is a critical area for development; and (8) libraries are finding their place in the literacy effort. Four appendixes contain a 151-item bibliography of the literature on libraries and literacy education; a list of project references; survey cover letters and questionnaires; and a site visit interview schedule.

Lessons from library power : enriching teaching and learning : final report of the evaluation of the national library power initiative : an initiative of the DeWitt Wallace-Reader's Digest Fund by Douglas Zweizig( Book )

6 editions published in 1999 in English and Undetermined and held by 193 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book presents the results of an evaluation of Library Power, an initiative of the DeWitt Wallace-Reader's Digest Fund that provided support for school library development in 19 communities. Following an introductory chapter, the chapters are organized around key questions of the evaluation. Chapters 2 through 4 address the implementation of key components of Library Power: improved collections; flexible access to an improved library facility; and a collaborative approach to using library resources in instruction. Chapters 5 through 7 covers some consequences of Library Power programs: how the program interacted with curriculum planning and instructional operation of the school, and how Library Power operated in conjunction with various school reform initiatives. Chapter 8 discusses how professional development was used as a strategy to communicate the intentions of the program, transmit needed skills, and foster the formation of teams in schools with a focus on the use of library materials in instruction. Chapter 9 examines the degree to which key Library Power practices can be seen to have been incorporated into school practice and the likelihood of their continuing after the end of formal grant funding. Finally, Chapter 10 presents reflections on the evaluation process from the perspective of an evaluation officer at the DeWitt Wallace-Reader's Digest Fund. Appendices include questionnaires for the library media specialist, principal, and teacher. (Mes)

Output measures for children's services in Wisconsin public libraries by Douglas Zweizig( Book )

5 editions published between 1985 and 1989 in English and held by 54 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The result of a pilot study funded by the Library Services and Construction Act (lsca), this document is both a report of a test of adaptations of "Output Measures for Public Libraries" for the measurement of children's services in Wisconsin public libraries, and a manual for children's librarians to use for future data collection. The material is intended to supplement "Output Measures for Public Libraries: a Manual of Standardized Procedures" (Zweizig and Rodger, 1982), and the numbers of the measures and page number references refer to that document. Measurement issues and sample sizes are discussed, and a three-phase pattern for gathering information is provided. Reports are then presented on the following measures used in this project: (1) Measure 1--Juvenile Circulation per Juvenile Capita; (2) Measure 2--In-Library Use of Juvenile Library Materials per Juvenile Capita; (3) Measure 3--Juvenile Library Visits per Juvenile Capita; (4) Measure 4--Annual Juvenile Program Attendance per Juvenile Capita; (5) Measure 6--Reference Fill Rate for Juveniles; (6) Measure 10--Library Registration of Juveniles as a Percentage of Juvenile Population; and (7) Measure 11--Turnover Rate of Juvenile Materials. Samples of forms used in the study are provided, including summary sheets for recording data on elements and output measures, and for reporting the collection experience. Additional data are summarized in three tables. (Km)

Learning in progress : a study of continuing library education in North Carolina by Joan Wright( Book )

5 editions published between 1982 and 1983 in English and held by 32 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A faceted classification scheme was developed for use as the conceptual foundation of two surveys which were conducted in order to gain a current and comprehensive picture of continuing library education (cle) in North Carolina. The scheme structured a database that, when computerized, will allow flexible search capabilities and easy updating. In the first survey, 47 current cle providers were interviewed to gain information about them and their offerings. For a consumer survey, 1,032 employed staff and 47 trustees completed questionnaires about their cle experiences and interests. The detailed results of these surveys appear in this report, as well as conclusions and recommendations of the study. Included are a comparison of the consumers' view of cle with information about cle gathered from providers, recommendations for the development of cle, and considerations for the cle planning process in North Carolina. A total of 49 tables and 35 figures are provided. Appendices comprise the interview form for the providers' survey; the consumer questionnaire and cover letter; the trustee survey; and sample forms for provider listings, continuing library education opportunity (cleo) descriptions, and cleo listings in a "Directory of Providers" and an "Inventory of cle Opportunities" (created under separate cover).
