Future Development of Libraries: The Organisational and Policy Framework.
Library Advisory Council, London (England).
Undertaken as a preliminary to a wider examination of future library development in Great Britain, this study of the organizational and policy framework within which libraries of all kinds will be able to cooperate efficiently in a coordinated library service gives particular attention to the roles of central government institutions and the Library Advisory Council. The report reviews the extent of existing central and local government responsibilities for library and information services, discusses the problems of coordination and policy making, identifies possible frameworks for a coordinated service, and concludes with specific recommendations. A proposed outline of an annual report to Parliament, relevant correspondence, and a glossary of acronyms are included. (FM)
