Hoyt, Beryl E., Ed.; Dudgeon, Lucile, Ed.
The objectives of this Institute are to: (1) understand basic factors in the building of public library systems; (2) become familiar with the Wisconsin social, governmental and fiscal bases in relation to which library systems may develop and (3) consider methods by which an area can build a library system. Major topics presented include: (1) Study of Public Library Development Through Systems, (2) Principles of Successful Systems, (3) Governmental and Fiscal Realities in Wisconsin, (4) What Do Librarians and Trustees Do Until Library System Legislation and State Aid Are a Reality, (5) The County Library Study and (6) Building Community Understanding. On the final day of the Institute, participants divided into four working groups to discuss the building of a library system in an imaginary four-county area for which data and special problems on situations are supplied.
