Delaware Library Survey; A Study of Public Library Services in Delaware With an Action Proposal for State-Wide Library Development, 1969-1974.
Schneider, Frank A.
This survey proposes a course of action to overcome the problems currently facing public libraries in Delaware. Included is information on (1)patterns of population, occupational and educational change in the state; (2)public library collections, personnel, finances, and deficiencies; (3)the role of the Library Commission for the State of Delaware; and (4)the objectives, components, services, and funding of a proposed state-wide library system linking district libraries to regional resource centers. A five-phase "action and funding schedule" for this system notes library commission action, legislative action, and costs of the program for each year from 1969 through 1974. Eleven specific recommendations for action are outlined. Appendices include (1)preliminary standards for district library services, (2)proposed law revisions, and (3)a chart of public library funding for fiscal year 1968. (Author/JW)
