The Texas State Library Communication Network, Policy and Procedure Manual. Second Edition.
Texas State Library, Austin.
The goal of the Texas State Library Communication Network (TSLCN) is service to the library patrons of the state. Acceptable policies and procedures contribute to efficient network operation. Although the goal of the TSLCN is unchanged, this second edition of the "Policy and Procedure Manual" refines and improves a functioning system. The steady development of the network is demonstrated in its use. At the Texas State Library level 2,419 requests were received from Major Resource Center (MRC) libraries from July-December, 1968; a total of 6,107 requests were received during 1969; and by the end of August, 1970, this sum was surpassed. The contents of this manual are: (1) introduction, (2) The Texas State Library Communication Network, (3) size I (Major Resource Center) libraries, (4) size II (serving 25,000-200,000 patrons) libraries, (5) size III (serving 25,000 or fewer patrons) libraries and (6) Texas State Library Reference Division. Various tools and forms used by the networks are included in the appendices. (Author/NH)
