Survey of Public Libraries Summit County, Ohio.
Library surveys are a means to an objective examination of the library and its services, helping to clarify the purposes that are being served and to assess the methods of providing these services. This survey was undertaken as a cooperative project of the seven public libraries of Summit County, Ohio. Its purpose was to develop a long-range plan for library service taking into account the changes forecast for the county. More specifically, the objectives were: (1) Inventory survey and analysis--for a picture of present conditions and future needs; (2) Development of library service standards--to determine the desirable levels of library service in terms of population growth patterns; (3) Preparation of a library plan and recommendations--to produce a comprehensive long-range plan for library service and to present recommendations for priorities and operations; and (4) Implementation--to advance a sound approach for translating a proposed plan into reality.
