Cooperative Programs between Schools and Public Libraries in Ohio.
This study examines the implementation and subsequent results of cooperative programs between schools and public libraries. The purpose of the survey was to identify cooperative activities which have taken place between Ohio's public libraries and schools and bring to light factors which have led to the success or failure of those cooperative ventures which have been attempted. The librarians' views of available resources, attempts at collaboration, and subsequent results of tested ideas have been assessed to provide a description of cooperative programs in Ohio communities. Certain correlations can be seen from the resulting data. The survey results support the theory that a library's available resources will have an effect upon the amount of cooperation that occurs with the schools. Also substantiated is the premise that communication with school personnel corresponds directly with the success of cooperative ventures. The cover letter and survey are appended. (Author/TMK)
