Problems of Regional Depository Libraries: A Panel Discussion Held at Syracuse University on June 9, 1966.
New York State Library, Albany.
The New York State Library's Committee on Federal Depository Library Service sponsored a panel discussion to assess the proble s of regional depositories, based on 3 years of experience in New York State. Members of the panel, representing university, college and public libraries, discussed the following topics: planning for state-wide federal documents service; conflicting obligations of regional depositories to their local clientele and to interlibrary loan requests; the need to strengthen local depository services; a possible increase in governmental support to regional depositories; future effectiveness of the 1962 law; and local library experiences with regional depository assistance. The development reports as well as conventional publications was emphasized, and discussion of efforts of library systems to achieve bibliographic access and provide resources on a cooperative basis indicated a need to cut across established institutional patterns.
