A PLAN FOR LIBRARY COOPERATION IN NEW HAMPSHIRE. REPORT TO NEW HAMPSHIRE STATE LIBRARY.
Little (Arthur D.), Inc., Cambridge, MA.
AS A STEP TOWARD IMPROVING SERVICES TO ALL USERS, THE NEW HAMPSHIRE STATE LIBRARY SPONSORED A STUDY OF BOTH THE SYSTEM OF LIBRARIES IN NEW HAMPSHIRE AND THEIR RESOURCES. THE STUDY ITSELF IS LIMITED TO THE POSSIBLE COORDINATION OF THE RESOURCES OF ALL TYPES OF LIBRARIES (PUBLIC, SPECIAL, SCHOOL, ACADEMIC) IN A WAY WHICH WILL MAKE THEM MORE READILY AVAILABLE TO THE LIBRARY PATRON, AND TO THE IMPROVEMENT OF SERVICES IN INSTITUTIONS AND TO THE HANDICAPPED. THE RECOMMENDATIONS DEVELOPED ARE BASED BOTH UPON AN EVALUATION OF THE LIBRARY SYSTEM AND UPON PRACTICES IN OTHER FIELDS, SUCH AS EDUCATION AND COMMUNICATIONS. THEY ARE DIVIDED INTO FOUR AREAS--(1) INTERLIBRARY COOPERATION, FOR WHICH THE RECOMMENDATIONS ARE FOCUSED UPON STRENGTHENING INTERLIBRARY LOAN PROCEDURES, DEVELOPMENT OF COLLECTIONS OF NON-BOOK MATERIALS, INCLUSION IN THE SYSTEM OF RESOURCES AVAILABLE IN LIBRARIES OTHER THAN PUBLIC LIBRARIES, AND GIVING GRANTS TO THOSE LIBRARIES WHOSE RESOURCES ARE HEAVILY USED BY OTHER LIBRARIES, (2) LIBRARY SERVICE TO INSTITUTIONS, WHICH INCLUDES A SUGGESTION TO STRENGTHEN THE INSTITUTIONAL LIBRARIES AND ALSO TO MAKE OTHER LIBRARY RESOURCES MORE ACCESSIBLE TO THEM THROUGH THE ESTABLISHMENT OF AN ADVISORY COUNCIL AND THE APPOINTMENT OF A PROFESSIONAL LIBRARIAN TO WORK CLOSELY WITH IT, (3) LIBRARY SERVICE TO THE HANDICAPPED, FOR WHICH IT IS PROPOSED A LIBRARY AT THE STATE LEVEL BE STARTED WHICH WOULD BE AN INTEGRAL PART OF THE STATE-WIDE NETWORK OF LIBRARIES, AND (4) POSSIBLE REGIONAL COOPERATION THROUGH A NETWORK OF NEW ENGLAND LIBRARIES. THE ADDENDA TO THE REPORT IS A SUGGESTED PLAN OF ACTION FOR LIBRARY COOPERATION IN NEW HAMPSHIRE. (CM)
