Zweizig, Douglas; And Others
Prepared by the Task Force on Library Legislation appointed by Wisconsin's State Superintendent of Public Instruction, this final report presents policy statements and action recommendations addressing issues related to the organizational and funding problems of public libraries, public library systems, and multitype library cooperation. The 19-member task force comprised a mixture of citizens and professional librarians, each representing informally one or a number of areas relevant to the concerns of local government, librarians, and users of libraries. The report provides specific suggestions on: (l) improvement in the quality and equity of library services available through public, school, and other types of libraries; (2) stabilization and improvement in access to public libraries across jurisdictional lines; (3) improvement in the equity of support for public libraries by different governmental jurisdictions; (4) improvement in cooperation and sharing of resources among all types of libraries; and (5) modification and improvement of legislation relating to libraries. Appendices contain a 1985-1987 Biennial Budget Summary for State Aid for Library Development; Section 121.02(1)(h), Wisconsin Statutes; a list of issue papers considered by the task force; Chapter 43, Wisconsin Statutes; and a new formula for Public Library System Aids Estimates.
