Standards of Practice for West African Libraries; Proceedings of a Seminar Held at the Institute of Librarianship, University of Ibadan, 15-16 April 1967.
Dean, John, Ed.
A seminar on standards for libraries in West Africa was held in April 1967. This proceedings volume presents the papers given by each of the participants. Discussed are the standards for collections, facilities, staff, technical processes and services for public, school, university and special libraries. The purpose was to focus upon the nature, development and application of standards generally, and to examine specific problems associated with the creation of standards for each type of library, with particular reference to the requirements of West Africa. As a result of these deliberations, the Institute of Librarianship is promoting a program of normative surveys of West African university and public library systems in order to secure the basic data for the establishment of regional standards.
