The Long-Range Plan for the Development of Library Service for the Citizens of Iowa.
Iowa State Traveling Library, Des Moines.
The plan for the development of library service for the citizens of Iowa is designed to indicate directions for the development of public library service in the State of Iowa and to define areas of interaction between all types of libraries in the state. It delineates the informational needs of various groups of Iowa citizens within the limits of available knowledge concerning these needs. It lists objectives of services that would meet the needs, and suggests some of the implementation steps necessary to realize these objectives within the limits of available resources and those that might reasonably be made available by taxing authorities. It describes new legal and organizational structures that are required to meet the changing needs and conditions of the residents of Iowa. It defines the role and function of public, school, and academic libraries in meeting the multiple and varied informational requirements of all Iowa citizens. It suggests methods and procedures for evaluating the progress of the plan and the activities that it generates including opportunity for feedback from the library user. (Other State Plans are: LI003985 through LI003993, LI003995 through LI004001, LI004003 and LI004004.) (Author/NH)
