A Partnership for Development: Public Libraries in Greater Vancouver.
Deliberations of the Five Year Plan Committee in 1970 uncovered a need for a separate study on the organization of public libraries in the greater Vancouver area. The results of such a study, conducted in 1971, are contained in this report. Part I dwells on the details of the rapid growth of the Vancouver area in the hope that those responsible for library development will better understand the problems involved and will recognize the need for a system approach to public libraries as the only way to improve local service. Part II, a description of the Vancouver area political structure, is important for library development because of the key role of the Regional District form of government. Part III analyzes some aspects of library service and relates it to local and national, social and library trends. Parts IV, V and VI deal with special problems of the region while Part VII outlines a development plan designed to mesh with a similar plan for the rest of British Columbia being worked out by the Five Year Plan Committee. A list of 20 recommendations pertinent to each part of the report is presented. (Author/SJ)
