A Five Year Program for Library Development in New Mexico, 1972-1977.
New Mexico State Library, Santa Fe.
Librarians of New Mexico have long felt that the library services of the state are not well enough organized nor of sufficient strength to meet the challenges of providing the information-related services its citizens need. This concern led to a series of studies of the problems and joint efforts towards solving them. Public, school, academic, and special librarians, as well as interested citizens, took part in these efforts. The New Mexico State Library Commission and the State Library staff also took part and encouraged this work. The Five-Year Program presented here is a logical outgrowth of the work that has gone before. The purpose of this Program is to set forth parallel courses of action designed to make "The Coordinated Library Systems of New Mexico" a realistic mechanism through which the state can bring its library resources to bear upon the problems facing New Mexico citizens. This program sets forth the problems facing libraries, the limits of the situation, and the roles that local, state, and federal agencies and funds may play as an effective means of meeting library service needs. (Other State Plans are: LI 003 985 through LI 003 991 and LI 003 993) (Author/NH)
