Oregon State Institutional Library Services; Library Services and Construction Act, Title IV-A's First Thrust - 1968.
Gould, Rodney J.
An evaluation is given of the accomplishments of the State of Oregon institutional libraries between the periods of May 2 and August 23, 1968 including recommendations for future endeavors. Early in 1968 the Assistant State Librarian conferred with institutional administrators and library Advisory Council members for Library Services and Construction Act (LSCA), Title IV-A on the priority needs within each of Oregon's eleven institutional libraries. These expressions of extreme need were the basis for Oregon's fiscal 1968 spending. The apportionment of monies for the particular institutions and the amounts allocated to them are presented in a table. For each type of institutional library, specific standards for library personnel, materials, services and facilities were developed as a guide for the administrators responsible for these activities. Basic considerations necessary for adequate library services are: (1) finance, (2) services or personnel, (3) materials, (4) facilities, (5) services and (6) in-service training. Recommendations are: (1) establishment of a new division of Institutional Library Services in the State Library, (2) development of definite goals and target dates for bringing the library program at all major institutions under professional direction and (3) the State Library upgrade holdings and resources in areas of responsibility of institutions related to the culturally disadvantaged and handicapped.
