Governor's Forums on Library and Information Services.
Pennsylvania State Library, Harrisburg.
Prepared for distribution to participants in the Pennsylvania Governor's Forums on Library and Information Services, this booklet contains the following items: letters of welcome from Governor Robert Casey and Barbara Bruno, Chair of the Steering Committee; an agenda; and descriptions of Pennsylvania's libraries, its statewide library service, and the names of library networks in Pennsylvania. Summaries of six conference papers and lists of related discussion issues are also provided: (1) "Building Library Resources for a Free Society" (Virginia M. Crowe) (2) "Creating a Literate Society Using Library Resources" (Kathryn Stephanoff); (3) "Increasing Productivity Through Information Technology" (Toni Carbo Bearman); (4) "Pennsylvania Citizens: Their Needs and Expectations" (Bernard Vavrek); (5) "Pennsylvania's Libraries: The Problems and Promises. Facilities, Materials, Personnel" (H. E. Broadbent III and Virginia Crowe); and (6) "Pennsylvania's Libraries: The Problems and Promises. Funding of Library and Information Services" (Toni Carbo Bearman and H. E. Broadbent III). The booklet concludes with a short list of library and information science acronyms and abbreviations and the names of conference planning committee members and other assisting members. It is noted that 14 Governor's Forums were held in 1990 to gather local input on the issues of concern to library and information users in the various regions of the state. This input was sent to the Governor's Conference, which, in turn, provided input for delegates to the White House Conference on Library and Information Services in July 1991. (MAB)
