Eugene Public Library, OR.
Prepared for the library and the library board, this policy manual governs the operations of the library and its relationships with other libraries and the community. The library, the board, and the position of City Librarian are established in law by the Eugene city code. The manual opens with a short history of the library and a statement of the bylaws of the library board, including excerpts from the city code. The philosophy and principles for operation cover membership, purposes and functions, administration, material resources, and personnel. A statement of goals and objectives for 1979 is provided, and operating policies are presented in separate sections on materials selection, exhibits, privacy of records, a code of ethics for library employees, regulations affecting the public, rules for the use of the library by groups, and a statement endorsing cooperative association with other libraries. The manual is published in loose leaf form. (RAA)
