An Evaluation of the Colorado Statewide Reference Network.
Lack of adequate administration is concluded to be the main cause of Network inefficiency and ineffectiveness. Some of the recommendations for improvement of Network administration are: (1) The Colorado State Library (CSL) should remain the central agency for administration of the Statewide Reference Network (SRN). CSL should accept responsibility for the planning and design of the Network; it should delegate role responsibilities and specialties; and it should be responsible for implementing operations and continuous evaluation; (2) CSL should identify a position within the organizational structure at the appropriate level for an administrator of the SRN; (3) A governing committee other than the Colorado Council on Library Development should be established to work closely with the administrator of SRN in the guidance and direction of the Network's development and (4) Objectives of the SRN should be established.
