The Harvard University Library, 1966-1976, Report of a Planning Study Submitted to the President of the University by the Director of the University Library and the University Librarian.
Harvard Univ., Cambridge, MA. Univ. Library.
The decade 1966-1976 and its implications for the Harvard University Library are the subject of this report. The problems examined include library collection policies, the impact of computers and other technical innovations on the Library's operations and services, availability of additional resources and possible savings through interlibrary cooperation, and questions of personnel, space, and finance. One major conclusion of the report is that an annex to Widener should be constructed. A second conclusion is that by 1975/76 an additional $2,100,000 per year over the 1964/65 budget will be needed to purchase library materials, as well as an additional $6,800,000 for other library expenditures. Appendix A provides tables and charts describing various aspects of the Harvard Library's operations by years from 1953/54 with extrapolations to 1975/76. Appendix B gives statements on individual units of the Library. (CC)
