Library Resources Survey, Kansas Institutions 1967.
Marcoux, Dale C.; Leach, Hugh V.
This study of twenty-two Kansas state institutions was conducted to appraise the reading habits and educational level of institutional residents, the library resources and service needs of institutional residents and staff, and the possibilities for library service at institutions with security requirements. Conclusions are based on visits to existing institutional library facilities, interviews with administrators and librarians, and background reading. Specific recommendations are: (1) the state of Kansas should provide sizable appropriations for library resources at the institutions covered in the survey, including funds for a professional librarian at larger institutions, (2) additional funds should be allocated to institutions by the State Librarian, based upon plans for use and needs, (3) the Office of State Libraries should provide processing and cataloging service for institutional libraries, (4) library resources should be defined to include books, pamphlets and equipment, (5) high priority should be given to the needs of professional and staff libraries, and (6) institutional and professional staff should have a strong voice in materials selection. Appended are recommendations and descriptive information for each institution surveyed. (JB)
