A Survey of Texas Public Libraries, 1965.
Management Services Associates, Inc., Austin, TX.
This survey is a statistical summary and analysis of data on Texas public libraries, collected by the Field Services Division of the Texas State Library. The following statistical presentations were prepared: (1) an individual statistical profile for each public library in the state, also including the classification of libraries by population served and the comparison of averages for these groups to published standards, (2) a summary of public library statistics by county, including analysis of city and county government support of libraries using assessed tax valuation and county income, and (3) a summary of library statistics by geographical region, with each of ten Major Resource Center libraries as the hub of these regions. In addition to these detailed statistical analyses, statewide public library characteristics are briefly summarized and recommendations are made for future surveys. Special comments on strengths and weaknesses of library collections which were submitted by field consultants and several key professional librarians are also discussed. Appendixes include explanations of data presented in the statistical analyses and a separate profile of each Major Resource Center area. (JB)
