California Libraries in the 1980s: Strategies for Service.
The product of consensus among representatives from all types of libraries in California, this document presents goals, objectives, and procedures for enhancing statewide library services in the 1980's in order to better meet the information needs of all people in the state. Nineteen objectives are described within four goal areas: (1) developing adequate and effective library and information services and informing people about them; (2) designing and offering services that link people with what they want to know through the widest means possible; (3) developing statewide cooperation among academic, public, school, and special libraries and other information agencies; and (4) ensuring that libraries receive financial and community support adequate to meet the library and information needs of the community. Procedures listed under each objective involve actions by a variety of institutions and organizations, particularly by the California State Library. It is noted that there is no legal mechanism to enforce the document's goals and objectives. Also included are a brief description of the California library environment, a list of persons involved in the creation of the document, a glossary of definitions and acronyms, and a detachable questionnaire to be used to register opinions of the document and indicate interest in helping to carry out its objectives.
