Specifications of a Mechanized Center for Information Services for a Public Library Reference Center. Final Report. Part 4, The State Library and Public Libraries of California as Centers for Information Services under the State Technical Services Act.
The potential role of public libraries and the California State Library in a state-wide technical information system for business and industry is the topic of this report. Three levels of services are proposed for the system: (1) research centers (major academic libraries), (2) subject reference centers (major public libraries), and (3) local service-contact libraries. The State Library has funded a pilot reference center designed to serve initially as a prototype and ultimately to become the administrative center for the public libraries' reference centers throughout the state. A preliminary schedule for mechanization of services for the network is given. (CC)
