THE IMPACT OF THE PUBLIC LAW 480 PROGRAM ON OVERSEAS ACQUISITIONS BY AMERICAN LIBRARIES, PROCEEDINGS OF A CONFERENCE HELD AT THE WISCONSIN CENTER (MADISON, MAY 12, 1967).
WILLIAMSON, WILLIAM L.
A CONFERENCE WAS SPONSORED BY THE UNIVERSITY OF WISCONSIN LIBRARY SCHOOL TO BETTER INFORM LIBRARIANS ABOUT THE PUBLIC LAW 480 PROGRAM UNDER WHICH THE LIBRARY OF CONGRESS ACQUIRES FOREIGN LANGUAGE AND ENGLISH PUBLICATIONS FROM DEVELOPING NATIONS FOR SELECTED U.S. LIBRARIES. REPRESENTING THE VARIOUS ASPECTS OF THE PROGRAM, MEMBERS OF THE PANEL DISCUSSED THEIR EXPERIENCES INFORMALLY. THE ACCOUNT OF THE ESTABLISHMENT AND OPERATION OF THE PROGRAM GIVES DETAILS ON THE LEGISLATIVE HISTORY, ORGANIZATION, COOPERATIVE CATALOGING AND ENGLISH-LANGUAGE PROGRAMS, AND FUTURE PLANS. PROBLEMS AND AREAS FOR IMPROVEMENT ARE REVEALED IN THE DESCRIPTION OF A SMALL COLLEGE'S EXPERIENCES WITH THE ENGLISH-LANGUAGE PROGRAM. THE REVIEW OF THE PROGRAM'S IMPACT ON A LARGE RESEARCH LIBRARY ILLUSTRATES METHODS OF HANDLING AN EXTENSIVE COLLECTION AND SHOWS THE EFFECT THE PROGRAM CAN HAVE ON UNIVERSITY TEACHING AND RESEARCH. FINALLY, THE PROGRAM'S MANY IMPLICATIONS FOR THE BROAD AREAS OF LIBRARIANSHIP AND FOR THE COUNTRIES THEMSELVES ARE EXAMINED, AND BRIEF CONSIDERATION IS ALSO GIVEN TO THE POSSIBLE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN THIS PROGRAM AND THE TITLE 2C OR SHARED CATALOGING PROGRAM AND THE EFFECT ON THE FARMINGTON PLAN.
