Sources of Funding for Virginia Libraries.
This report is designed to (1) educate non-librarians as to how Virginia libraries are funded, (2) inform librarians of funding outside their particular specialty, (3) suggest the adequacy and inadequacy of such funding and its dependability, and (4) outline the formulas by which funds are distributed. Section I, a short outline of factors increasing the cost of library service and an informal summary of funding sources, is intended as a quick reference to some of the realities, needs, and prospects for funding on each governmental level. The more detailed Section II provides statistics, charts, and historical perspectives in discussing the funding patterns for five types of libraries: school, public, state college and university, two-year college, and private four-year college libraries.
