Long Range Program Library Development in Alaska 1972-1977.
Alaska State Dept. of Education, Juneau. Div. of State Libraries.; Alaska Advisory Council for Libraries, Juneau.
Organization of library development in Alaska will follow the Public Administration Services recommendation of three regions with community outlets and centers, a resource center and a research library in each region. A Regional Coordinator as a member of the State Library staff is needed in each region to work with all the communities and libraries. It is expected that there will be phases of development in each region each year through grants and coordination of existing resources. This five-year program is not specific in all phases; information is still to be gathered for some needs assessment, current programs must be evaluated more carefully, and priorities must be examined by each region and each library. Expected outcomes of the first five years of the Long Range Program, 1972-1977, include efficient sharing of library resources, improved materials collections, access to basic and continuing education for library personnel, better facilities, and service systems and programs which are designed to encompass total library service. (Other State Plans are: LI003985 through LI003993 and LI003996 through LI004004.) (Author/NH)
