The Howard University library system is reviewed as an organization in this report which analyzes its facilities, reports on a user/non-user survey, and gives a statistical overview. Recommendations for making the library a vital part of the educational program and for increasing its usefulness are included. From the data gathered it was concluded that, while Howard had made great strides to improve its collection and staffing, it still has a long way to go in order to catch up with the leading institutions. Particularly inadequate are the number of clerical and hourly employees and the funds allocated for these purposes. To move ahead Howard will require a substantially larger library budget, and within the budget larger percentages should be allocated to hourly assistance and to binding and rebinding. The number of clerical and hourly employees should be increased by one-third and the periodical titles doubled. (Author/NH)
