Michigan Library, Lansing.
To assist in the dissemination of information concerning Michigan public library projects funded under the Library Services and Construction Act (LSCA), this publication presents a collection of project reports from grant recipients. The state LSCA long range planning and report process is briefly described and members of the LSCA Planning Committee are listed. Reports are presented in three categories: (1) cooperative sharing, including resource and information sharing, centralized purchasing and processing, centralized cataloging, development of computer output microform (COM) union catalogs, interlibrary lending, computerized circulation control, development of a cooperative holdings database, and automated bibliographic control; (2) expansion of library service to the handicapped, including urban and subregional services to the blind, the deaf and hearing impaired, and the physically handicapped; and (3) development of special collections including outdoor education (nature study), film, Russian language, videocassette, and major urban resource collections. Each report contains funding information, the name and address of the grant recipient, the name of the project director, a map showing the location of the grant recipient, a list of project objectives, a project description, and an evaluation of the project.
