Baron, Jean, Ed.
Illinois Libraries, v61 n4 p303-92 Apr 1979
This issue of "Illinois Libraries" is a report of the Illinois White House Conference on Library and Information Services, held in Springfield, November 12-14, 1978. After a brief introduction, the planning process for the conference is described, including committee work, timetables established, the efforts of state agencies, delegate selection procedures, and public relations activities. Activities at the 17 regional conferences held prior to the state conference are summarized, and an analysis of their 315 delegates--by area of occupation and assorted categories of information--is provided. A narrative report of the state conference is given, the 108 recommendations that emerged from consolidating delegate reports are listed, and the delegates chosen to represent Illinois at the White House Conference are identified. After an evaluation of the White House Conference activities in Illinois against the objectives of the advisory/planning committee, the report concludes with a conference summary and challenge. Side notes include various committee member listings, a listing of state conference delegates, a summary description of libraries in Illinois, conference rules, speakers, a description of the Information Game Exhibit at the Conference, and some typical post-conference comments by attending delegates.
