Lynch, Mrs. Weldon
This document is a revision of "Guidelines for Holding a Governor's Conference on Libraries (American Library Association, American Trustee Association, 1963). The report discusses what governor's conferences on libraries are and how they may be helpful. Many aspects of planning for such a conference are presented, including how much time to leave for planning, areas of responsibility to be designated by the conference coordinator, financial support, use of print and non-print materials, publicity, and publication of the final report. The how to do it manual answers the following questions: (1) Who sponsors the conference? (2) Who calls the conference? (3) What should the theme and purpose be? (4) Who should be invited? (5) Who finances the conference? (6) What expenses are involved? (7) What organization is necessary? (8) Who administers? (9) Who should be on the program? and (10) How should the conference be evaluated? A suggested minimum timetable of preparations for a governor's conference is provided. (CC)
