Maryland Plan for Libraries, 1981-1986.
Maryland State Dept. of Education, Baltimore. Div. of Library Development and Services.
Designed by the library community and approved by the Maryland Advisory Council on Libraries, the Maryland Library Association, and the State Board of Education, this master plan establishes directions and targets for meeting the library needs of Maryland citizens for the next five years. The result of a series of formal and informal meetings of the Advisory Planning Committee made up of academic, public, school, and special librarians and lay persons, it sets forth four major goals: public access to and encouragement to use libraries and media centers; services to faculty, students, and staff; interlibrary cooperation; and services to special populations. Subordinate objectives for accomplishment by governmental, educational, and library agencies from the state through the local level are provided. The plan calls for implementation during the period 1981-86 through the mutual efforts of the concerned agencies; stipulates financial support requirements to the state executive and legislative branches; and requests guidelines and staff, technical, and program assistance from the State Department of Education. A 35-item bibliography and a directory of the planning committee members are included. (RAA)
