Proceedings of the Conference on School-Public Library Relations (New York City, February 8-9, 1968).
New York State Education Dept., Albany. Div. of Library Development.
The general purpose of this conference was to bring together school and public librarians to discuss library service to the student, "wherever he lives, wherever or whether he attends school, and whatever his aspirations and abilities." Topics discussed at the conference include new developments and goals in service to students, impact of current programs on student services, patterns in promoting cooperative library service, the role of the Commissioner's Committee on Library Development in service to students, and ideas for using an interlibrary cooperative development project fund. The major concerns to come out of the discussions were for adequacy of service, comprehensive program and fiscal planning, an integrated structure, mutual respect and understanding of roles, and user oriented goals. A 3 page summary of the conference proceedings is provided along with a list of the conference participants. (CC)
