The Role of Libraries in the Cultural History of Indiana.
Constantine, J. Robert
The libraries of Indiana, as agencies of culture, have been vitally affected by wars, cycles of prosperity and depression and by innovations in public policy at the national level of government, reflecting the history of the state. Although an overriding importance has been attached to the libraries of the state as a means of promoting the material interests of both individuals and society, adequate funding has been rare. Funding requirements in the future promise a challenge of greater magnitude as the library's traditional role of continuing education is enlarged. Libraries will be expected to provide services to cope with the increased leisure time of society and to meet the critical needs of society for an educated electorate. A listing of 126 items describes reference sources on the historical aspects of state development. (AB)
