A Study of Existing Library Services in Nebraska State Institutions.
Nebraska Public Library Commission, Lincoln.
The purposes of this study were (1) to determine the present status of library services in the state institution of Nebraska, (2) to examine the extent to which resources from outside agencies are being used, and (3) to prepare a report to aid in developing a state plan for improved library services to institutions. Included in the survey are penal and correctional institutions, mental institutions, medical facilities and homes, and educational institutions. Information for the study was gathered by preparing extensive background reports on each institution and by sending questionnaires to and making visits to each library. The general conclusion of the report is that library services in institutions need additional planning, reorganization, and adequate financing. Nine major recommendations for improved service are given. (CC)
