Partners in Information; A Study of Community Information Centres in Ontario.
Head, Wilson A.
There is a recognized need for more effective access by citizens to the proliferating multitude of available community services and facilities. The starting point of such access is being aware of the services themselves. Citizens need specific information quickly and a means of discussing it in terms of their own problems. Community information centers have developed as a result of this need. This study was initiated to investigate the possible role for the Government of Ontario in the organization and operation of such centers. Existing centers are studied in terms of goals, services provided, organization and procedures. It is recommended that community information services be expanded and that government support, financial and otherwise, be increased without government taking control of the programs. (SJ)
