Changing Patterns; a Branch Library Plan for the Cleveland Metropolitan Area. A Report to the Cleveland Public Library and the Cuyahoga County District Library.
Regional Planning Commission, Cleveland, OH.
In February, 1965 the boards of the Cleveland Public and Cuyahoga County Library Districts engaged the Regional Planning Commission to prepare a plan for the expansion or modification of their branch library systems. The general goal of the study was the design of a fully satisfying level of branch library service for the people of Cuyahoga County. This report outlines the history of library districts in metropolitan Cleveland and the background of this study, describes the various surveys conducted and the analytical techniques employed to evaluate the data, the standards and other guides for the study's judgments, and makes specific recommendations as to the number, location, and type of branches needed by 1970 and 1980 to strengthen and maintain the level of branch library service in metropolitan Cleveland. The appendices form a technical supplement detailing some of the background statistical material and the research and analytical techniques. (Author)
