Conference on Inter-Library Cooperation and Exchange, San Juan, Puerto Rico, April 30 - May 2, 1969.
Virgin Islands Dept. of Conservation and Cultural Affairs, St. Thomas. Div. of Libraries and Museums.
The Conference had as its main objective the assembling of library administrators and librarians to consider all aspects relating to the implementation of a library cooperative plan for the interchange of publications, photoduplication services and bibliographic information. Papers that were presented are: (1) "Automation and Bibliographic Control" by Enid M. Baa and Joseph J. Breen, (2) "The Role of Archives in Regional Cooperation" by M. J. Chandler, (3) "Copyright Laws" by Abe Goldman, (4) "Problems of Photocopying" by Paulita C. Maldonado de De la Torre and (5) "Centre d'Etudes Regionales Antilles-Guyane" by J. P. Jardel. A great portion of this report (147 pages) deals with library reports from each country. These reports cover such areas as: (1) copyright and depository laws; (2) list of serials published in the country; (3) archival information (condition and availability of materials, organization, volume, etc.); (4) problems the library faces in serving the community and (5) problems the library may face if it participates in a plan for interlibrary cooperation. The delegates of the Conference approved an 11 page questionnaire to gather additional information, which was sent to every public, research and university library. A preliminary analysis of the questionnaire is included. (MF)
