Statewide Library Surveys and Development Plans; An Annotated Bibliography, 1956-1967.
Rike, Galen E.
This annotated bibliography of statewide surveys and development plans lists 132 items published between 1956 and 1967. Criteria for selection included: (1) all surveys and separately published development plans with statewide coverage including, but not restricted to, public libraries and (2) all such surveys and plans covering less than an entire state if they provided what amounted to statewide coverage when taken collectively, or if they were primarily concerned with, and directly related to, planning being done on a statewide basis. Entries are arranged alphabetically by state and chronologically within each state. Annotations are quite extensive and include such information as impetus and support for the study, its purpose and scope, the methodology, and a summary of the major findings and recommendations. An appendix lists 13 more surveys published or expected to be published in 1968. (RP)
