The Library in the New Polytechnic.
The aims of this one-year research project undertaken for the School of Librarianship were: (1) to determine the various information needs of the user groups in the colleges, (2) to investigate present library services in light of the users' needs and (3) to propose immediate and long-term development plans for the library. In this study the role of the library within the college, was examined; the library services were evaluated and an investigation into the library administration was made; the staff and students were asked to state their minds for library services by means of a questionnaire survey and their views on current provision were sought; libraries in comparable institutions in England, Germany and Holland were visited to see what developments, if any, are relevant to the situation here; and proposals have been made on two levels: (a) immediate measures and (b) long-term measures. The main findings and recommendations are summarized. (Author/NH)
