A Decade of Accomplishment. National Commission on Libraries and Information Science Annual Report, 1980-1981.
National Commission on Libraries and Information Science, Washington, DC.
This tenth annual report of the National Commission on Libraries and Information Science (NCLIS)--a permanent, independent agency in the Executive Branch--covers the period which marks the end of the first decade of the Commission's programs, and therefore a review of past accomplishments and a brief history of the origins of NCLIS are included. Discussed in the first part of the report are accomplishments in NCLIS's three major priority areas for FY 1981; these areas are: (1) development of specifications for revised library and information services legislation; (2) improving the management and dissemination of federal information; and (3) resource sharing and the application of technology. Plans for continuing and expanding these priorities are also discussed. A list of Commission members is included, in the Prologue, and the origins of NCLIS are described in a separate section. Among the numerous appendices are: The NCLIS Act--Public Law 91-345; NCLIS Publications; Projects of NCLIS; Fiscal Statement; White House Conference on Library and Information Services Authorization, Public Law 93-568; Publications and Media Produced by the White House Conference; and Elements of a Comprehensive National Library and Information Services Program.
