Toward Total Library Service: An Action Program for Library Development in Maryland.
Maryland State Dept. of Education, Baltimore. Div. of Library Development and Services.
The purpose of this State plan is to provide a focus for the continued development of library services in Maryland. It presents an overview of the present situation and a plan of action that will implement the recommendations of recent studies, reports, legislation, and discussions by many individuals, committees, and other groups. It indicates in general terms other areas that need attention. The plan also emphasizes activities which begin to provide a means for more pertinent data to be acquired and analyzed so that a continued and sustained planning and evaluation process can result. While school and public library plans are covered at length this document does not include the development of college and university library services except as they relate to the interlibrary loan network. One specific objective for 1973 is directed toward the initiation of the planning process by local public library systems. Activities planned under other specific objectives include the collection and analysis of data as a basis for further planning. (Other State Plans are: LI003985 through LI003993, LI003995 through LI004000, and LI004002 through LI004004.) (Author/NH)
