National Commission on Libraries and Information Science. Annual Report to the President and Congress, 1976-1977.
National Commission on Libraries and Information Science, Washington, DC.
This sixth annual report of the National Commission on Libraries and Information Science (NCLIS) covers the 15-month period between July 1, 1976 and September 30, 1977. Activities reported include preparations for the White House Conference on Library and Information Services (Public Law 93-568) as well as the ongoing implementation of the Commission's National Program. Final reports were obtained from three studies undertaken earlier: Inventory of Library Needs--1975; Evaluation of the Effectiveness of Federal Funding of Public Libraries; and Library Photocopying in the United States. The Task Force on a National Periodicals System completed its work with a report: Effective Access to the Periodical Literature, and three more task forces were constituted to work computer protocols, standards in the library and documentation fields, and the role of the school library/media center in the National Program. Continuing activities included support for the Committee for the Coordination of National Bibliographic Control; communication, coordination, and cooperation with other government agencies and the professional community; and keeping abreast of developments in the area of copyright. All of these activities, and others, as well as plans for the future and recommendations for the following year, are discussed in this report. (Author/JVP)
