Archival Library and Museum Services in the State of Nevada, A Survey Report, 1968.
Friedman, Burton Dean; Mullen, Robert
This study is concerned with the Nevada state government's administrative arrangements for historical collections, library services, and public records management. Many agencies or institutions are now involved in these activities. For this survey the staff made visits to each major agency included in the study. Discussions were held with administrators about service, goals and objectives, and problems of organization and administration. Background materials were obtained to elaborate upon regular biennial reports and budget documents. Particular attention was focused on these characteristics of each operation: (1) clientele or purpose served; (2) functional relationships among agencies; (3) adequacy of present resources to satisfy current and future needs; (4) management philosophy and susceptibility to executive control; and (5) possibilities for achieving greater effectiveness with present resources. Chapter II outlines characteristics of the functions being considered, reviews major problems associated with each, and defines the roles which each must assume as a state-sponsored activity. Chapters III through V consider alternative organizational arrangements and suggest a specific plan for improvement. (Author/CC)
