Library Service, A Statement of Policy and Proposed Action by the Regents of the University of the State of New York.
New York State Education Dept., Albany.
A plan of action by which library service and development in New York State can respond to rapid and dynamic changes in society is outlined. The program is based on the principles that any state resident has a right to convenient access to local libraries to meet his needs, that statewide library networks constitute the most efficient means to provide quality user service, and that an integrated library network should be developed. The proposed action plan relates to specific users and programs including children and young people, higher education and the research community, residents of health, welfare and correctional institutions, and young adults and adults. The role of the state is examined and priorities for funding are established. Six appendices include a network schematic; descriptions of school, state institution and public library needs and the Reference and Research Library (3R's) program, and legislative finance formulas.
