The functions and roles of state library agencies by Ethel E Himmel( Book )

2 editions published between 1998 and 2000 in English and held by 76 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This publication, which replaces "Standards for Library Functions at the State Level" (third edition) published in 1985) acknowledges and celebrates the richness and diversity of state library agencies while documenting the reality of what they currently do. The publication is divided into two sections. The first section of these standards provides a descriptive summary of the totality of collections, functions, and services offered by state library agencies throughout the country. Much of the information is presented in chart form and is based on a survey of all 50 United States that was conducted in Fall 1997. The tabular information is supplemented by short essays which provide specific examples of how individual states view or carry out certain services. Both common and uncommon services are presented, and insight is provided into what is typical and what is unusual. The second section of this publication deals on a more conceptual level with the roles that state library agencies can play in their respective states. This section concentrates more on library development aspects of state library agency work rather than on direct services. A final part of the second section discusses the movement toward more substantive evaluation by state libraries of their contribution to the welfare of a state and their use of both state and federal funds.

After the User Survey, What Then? Issues and Innovations in Transforming Libraries, No. 4. SPEC Kit 226 by GraceAnne A DeCandido( Book )

1 edition published in 1997 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This Systems and Procedures Exchange Center (SPEC) Kit reports on eight Association of Research Libraries (ARL) members that were interviewed in July and August 1997 about how they have addressed the results of user surveys conducted between 1992 and 1995. Although libraries have recognized the importance of user surveys, sometimes the surveys get filed and forgotten. Through the use of user surveys, the institutions have discovered what their users want, and this report reveals the institutions' strategies and struggles to meet and anticipate their users' needs. While institutional differences require context-specific user surveys, a disturbing fact consistently emerged from the survey results: library users, faculty, and students are often unaware of programs and services that their libraries already offer. The ARL members interviewed represent a range of stages in the libraries' responses to their user surveys. Some have transformed their cultures into user-centered ones, some are striving to meet newly discovered needs, and some are just starting to formulate responses to their user surveys. Reports are provided on interviews with library staff at the following institutions: (1) MIT; (2) University of California at San Diego; (3) University of Arizona; (4) North Carolina State University; (5) University of Virginia; (6) University of Connecticut; (7) Ohio State University; and (8) Rice University.
