Emerging Library Systems: The 1963-66 Evaluation of the New York State Public Library System.
New York State Education Dept., Albany. Div. of Evaluation.
This report discusses the following aspects of New York Public Library systems: services, resources, organization and government, accessibility, users and uses, role of the state, management, finance, special problems of New York City libraries, and trends. Information was collected mainly during late 1964 and 1965 and was gathered from local library annual reports, interviews in all system headquarters and selected local libraries, check lists, performance questions, user questionnaires, and a review of the literature. The major recommendation of the nineteen presented is that library service of all types and at all levels should be coordinated. Excerpts from the New York State laws and regulations which pertain to library systems are appended. (CC)
