New York State Agency Libraries.
Bookmark, v41 n3 Spr 1983.
This quarterly issue focuses on the role of New York state agency libraries in meeting the information needs of state officials and residents. The first four papers include "State Library Agencies: An Overview," based on a 1982 survey with 19 respondents (Lucille C. Whalen); "Extending the State Library's Information Services to State Government" (Jean Hargrave); "History of Information Sharing in New York Government" (Bettina H. Wolf); and "Development and Coordination of Library Services to State Government" (Peter J. Paulson et. al). Profiles of state agency libraries follow, including descriptions of the Department of Health Library (Thomas Flynn), the libraries of the Judicial Branch (Mary S. Burch), the Department of Commerce Library (John J. Kilrain), and the Department of Correctional Services libraries, particularly the Otisville Correctional Facility library (Donald A. Drewett). Robert Allen Carter and Jean Hargrave summarize the March 1982 Department of Social Services Library cost effectiveness study and Ruth Aronson describes the New York State Interagency Information Group (NYSIIG). Also presented are a list of important federal government documents covering New York state statistical subjects (Don Voorhees and David Parish), a preliminary list of oral history and other audiovisual local history resources in the state's public libraries (Joseph W. Palmer), and an assessment of the Higher Education Act (HEA) Title II funds awarded to New York's college and university libraries in 1982 (E. J. Josey). (ESR)
