Libraries and Industry; Background Study for Use by the National Advisory Commission on Libraries.
North, J.; And Others
The objective of this study was to analyze all operating factors in the relationship between libraries and industry. An investigation was made of situations which affect either library service to industry or industry service to libraries. Examined were the relationship between all types of libraries and the publishing industry, between libraries and suppliers of furniture and equipment for libraries, between libraries and their business and industrial users; business and industry support to libraries; and support to libraries from the government as a factor in both the growth of libraries and the projected relations of them with industry. A survey was made of the relationships library equipment manufacturers have with libraries and the relationships certain libraries have established with their business and industry users. Recommendations were made in these areas: (1) statistics gathering and analysis, (2) mediums of exchange for interlibrary transactions, (3) surveys of users, (4) interlibrary use codes, (5) means of support for library service to industry, (6) standards for library equipment and supplies, (7) special requirements for publications, (8) identification of publications, and (9) copyright.
