International Standardization of Library Statistics. Final Report.
United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization, Paris (France).
At its fifteenth session, the General Conference deemed it desirable that an international instrument be drawn up for the international standardization of statistics relating to libraries, in the form of a recommendation to Member States. Thus, the Director-General drew up a preliminary report together with a preliminary draft recommendation (See LI 002 088). These were sent under cover of a circular letter dated 16 July 1969 to Member States, who were invited to submit their comments and observations on this matter by 12 December 1969. By 31 December 1969, twenty countries had replied. Eighteen of these submitted comments and observations. The full text of the replies containing comments are in Annex I. Annex II is an analysis of these comments. In the light of the comments submitted, the Secretariat has prepared a revised draft recommendation which is the subject of Annex II. This document together with document COM/MD/6 (LI 002 088) form the final report to be submitted to a special committee of governmental experts meeting in Paris May 19 to 28, 1970. The draft recommendation from this committee will be submitted to the General Conference for adoption at its sixteenth session. (NH)
