Library facilities and services for 60,000 users in the fields of astronomy, chemistry, earth sciences, physics, engineering, mathematics, and, to some extent, architecture, in the New York City Metropolitan area are the subject of this report. Recommendations for cooperative library efforts to improve resources, services, and organization and administration are presented. Data were collected from scientists and engineers in the area, science librarians in the area, college and university students majoring in or taking courses in science subjects, copying departments of large libraries, manufacturers and trade associations, libraries and information services in other areas, and individuals in library and information service industries. A Bibliography of Selected Readings on Regional Library Cooperation and Interlibrary Cooperation appears on pages 106 to 111. Maps of the areas involved, copies of the questionnaires and forms used, sources and tables of data, and library collection specialties are appended. (CC)
