Energy Information Transfer in Virginia. A Planning Conference.
The Virginia Planning Conference for Solar Technology Information Transfer was held in Richmond in February 1978 to elicit suggestions on how to make Virginians aware of libraries as sources of energy information and how Virginia libraries can keep their energy materials and reference services up to date. A summary of this planning session and a set of recommendations for future action are presented in this report. Topic areas include: (1) the Oak Ridge National Laboratory Program; (2) the Virginia Program as categorized by various elements of the proposed information transfer system--reference materials, public libraries as referral centers, an annotated acquisitions list for public libraries, the inter-agency networks, the public information campaign, and sources of funding; and (3) the agency or institution rendering service--public, state, college, university, community college, and public school libraries, the State Department of Education, the Virginia Library Association, Energy Office, Polytechnic Institute, State University Extension Division, and the Office of Consumer Affairs. A summary of existing services that are expected to continue and recommendations for their expansion are included. A participant list, state, local, and national sources for solar information, a library bibliography, and a checklist of solar energy materials provided to all public libraries in Virginia are appended.
