Survey of User Service Policies in Indiana Libraries and Information Centers.
Olson, Edwin E.
The areas of strength and the areas of weakness in the general patterns of library user service policies in Indiana are identified. The study also presents information which will have an impact on planning and provision of future library services in the state. The current pattern of library service policies in Indiana are compared with the optimal policy chosen by groups of librarians and the ideal policy from the users' view point. Part One of this report presents important aspects of the study methodology. In Part Two, after a discussion of assumptions, and the organization and overview of the data, the study findings are presented according to the outline of user service policies used in the questionnaire. In Part Three, the conclusions and implications of the study for the state of Indiana are discussed. The appendices present additional methodological detail, and the Supplement presents all of the descriptive data tables and detailed weights obtained in the study. (MF)
