Library and Reference Applications: Census Tapes and Printed Reports.
Anders, Mary Edna
Census tapes are not a ready reference tool and must be supported by appropriate program tapes. However, census materials provide the single, most important sources of information and measures which, properly used, provide a better understanding of our society. In utilizing census products, librarians need to fill the role of a user, as well as that of middleman or distributor. Census data can contribute to planning library services and collection development, cooperation, and analyzing and evaluating services for the librarian in the role of a user. The librarian as a middleman must provide access to printed reports, assistance in use, indexing, and information about tapes and tape use. Users will be planning and development agencies, local organizations, local businessmen and students. (AB)
