Widening the Circle, Libraries for Tomorrow; Governor's Task Force to Study Library Services in Maine. Interim Report.
Governor's Task Force to Study Library Services in Maine, Augusta.
The Governor's Task Force to Study Library Services in Maine were directed to accomplish three tasks: (1) survey the present resources and services of the state, public, college, school, and special libraries in Maine and evaluate these resources and services in terms of identified needs; (2) determine ways in which libraries, their services and resources, may be improved and coordinated at all levels to assure equal access for all citizens to their educational and cultural benefits; and (3) recommend action by which the state can encourage and effect development of library service indicated by the study. This interim report summarizes the findings of the Task Force regarding library resources, services, and principal needs. It then outlines the elements of a library service concept based on the library as a means of access to the full body of library resources in the state. As the first step toward translation of this concept into explicit recommendations for state action, it recommends the development of new library service standards for Maine. (Author/NH)
