Library Resource and Service Centers of Kansas, with Guidelines for Future Development and Cooperative Use.
Foster, Robert D.
Kansas libraries suffer from a shortage of professional librarians and information materials, restricted budgets and increased demands for services. Librarians are aware of the problems and have taken steps to reorganize, revitalize and refinance the structure of library services. State-wide planning is, however, hampered because the delegation of authority and responsibility for total planning has not been clear-cut. Insufficient funding and the lack of short- and long-range planning cause under-utilization of Kansas libraries. Recommendations are made for improved services for the state-wide library networks, college and university libraries, public, school and special libraries. An implementation plan is described, along with plans for establishment of the libraries as resource centers tailored to meet the needs of their user communities. (AB)
