Baltimore Metropolitan Area Library Study, Short Range Work Program: Tasks, Schedule, and Methods.
CONSAD Research Corp., Pittsburgh, PA.
Described is a six-month work program, financed with Library Service and Construction Act funds, which applies systems analysis to public library organization, services, and facilities. The three public library systems of Baltimore City (Enoch Pratt Free Library), Baltimore County, and Anne Arundel County, Maryland are to be studied. Investigated will be the decision process relating to library services. The location of a single branch facility near common jurisdictional borders is to be examined to determine how changes in branch services or facilities would significantly alter overall library service. The problem is structured within the framework of a multi-facility (total region) evaluation process. Work tasks are described, the evaluation process flow is charted, and the short-range work program is related to the concurrent development of a multi-year schedule of studies for library planning.
