Results of a Questionnaire for Institution Library Consultants in State Agencies.
Mayo, Kathleen O., Comp.; Stipek, Kathleen, Comp.
This compilation of survey results, submitted by institutional library consultants from 42 states between December 1981 and May 1982, is divided into two parts: a narrative section for longer survey responses, and a more extensive section of tables for shorter answers. Correctional and mental health institutions, hospitals, and homes for the physically disabled, the elderly, and veterans are mentioned as state institutions involved in library programs. The 39 survey questions cover the official classification, salary, professional affiliations, and responsibilities of institution library consultants in state agencies; requirements for the position; the services, special projects, funding, and expenditures of institutional library programs; the number of people served by the programs; the training, recruitment, status, salary, official classification, and continuing education of institutional librarians; cooperation among state officials, state agencies, institutional libraries, local libraries, and other bodies; and the most useful reading material for institution library consultants.
