Financial Implications of the Downs Report on Canadian Academic and Research Libraries. (Repercussions Financieres du Rapport Downs sur les Bibliotheques d'Universite et de Recherche au Canada); The Downs Report in Perspective; (Le Rapport Downs).
Blackburn, Robert H.; Stuart-Stubbs, Basil
A report entitled "Resources of Canadian Academic and Research Libraries," by Robert B. Downs, (ED 019 095) was the subject of conference held in Montreal, in April 1968, sponsored by the Association of Universities and Colleges of Canada and the Canadian Association of College and University Libraries. This document consists of two key papers on the Downs Report which were presented at the conference. The paper by Robert Blackburn is an attempt to project the operational and capital costs of academic libraries in Canada during the next ten years, based on the principles stated in the Downs Report. Calculations are based on the best figures available in the summer of 1968. The second paper, "The Downs Report in Perspective" by Basil Stuart-Stubbs, discusses general trends in universities, libraries, and in knowledge itself that have a direct bearing on the present and future situation of libraries. This document also includes copies of both papers in French. (JB)
