Long Range Plan for Library Service to the People of New York State, (July 1, 1972-June 30, 1977); Utilizing Local, State and Federal Resources.
New York State Library, Albany.; New York State Education Dept., Albany. Div. of Library Development.
New York State's long history of interest in libraries has provided a series of studies and evaluations of library service dating back to the 1940's. Because of this, a broad and well-planned base already existed from which the New York State Long-Range Plan for Library Service was developed. As a result, it is necessary to read this plan in relation to the "Report of the Commissioner of Education's Committee on Library Development" (1970), which recommends directions and ways of meeting needs of library users (ED 042 482), and "Library Service: A Statement of Policy and Proposed Action by the Regents of the University of the State of New York" (1970), a position paper (ED 045 101). In order to make maximum use of diverse resources for the maximum number of people, the development of systems and networks of libraries is the chosen method of providing "convenient free access to local libraries" to meet the needs of "any State resident, regardless of age." (Other State Plans are: LI 003 985 through LI 003 990, and LI 003 992 and LI 003 993.) (Author/NH)
