New York State Education Dept., Albany. Div. of Library Development.
The statistical information contained in this publication was gathered from residential institutions maintained by the State of New York or receiving substantial support from it. Those which contributed data did so voluntarily, for the purpose of providing a statewide picture of library service to the patients, students, or inmates of custodial institutions. The data are incomplete for some institutions; some failed to supply the information. The institutions surveyed are grouped under the following major categories: correctional services, education, health, mental hygiene, narcotics addiction control, social services, and the division for youth. Statistics are supplied for: total inmates or patients, total staff, library materials added 1970-71 and total holdings as of 3-31-71, expenditures, staff hours for the year, and total circulation. A directory of state institutions and a sample of the data collection form are appended. (Author/SJ)
