Planning and the Business of Librarianship.
Doyle, Daniel
The concept of total planning as applied in this presentation refers to planning as a part of library organization. It is felt that greater care should be taken at top-level planning to ensure that some proportion of the income and credit available is allocated to various services to allow departmental planning to be carried out effectively. This cannot be reduced to simple programming. It is stressed that while planning should control, control should not be the purpose of planning. The purpose o planning must always be the provision of better service for people and that this be done in the most efficient manner possible. Whenever institutions are created there is always the danger of lavishing on the institutions the love and care which was intended for the people they serve. (Author/NH)
