Aspects of Public Library Administration; Report on a Study Tour of Libraries Overseas in 1968. Second Edition.
Smith, Charles Edmund
Specific aspects of public library administration that were investigated by this study were: economics of librarianship (improving services and reducing costs); promoting the use of public libraries; coordination of library branches having varied sizes, services and distances from one another; library cooperation; student use of libraries; methods of financing libraries (particularly in relation to Government subsidies); and whether any system exists which may be of use in Newcastle in providing assistance to senior pupils in schools to use library services more effectively. These topics are covered in the nine chapters of the report. The appendix lists the libraries and archives visited, showing the dates of visits. A bibliography and subject index are also included.
