Meeting the Challenge: Illinois State Library's Long-Range Program for Library Development in Illinois, 1972-77.
Illinois State Library, Springfield.
The long-range program for Illinois libraries was developed in accordance with the requirements of the Library Services and Construction Act. The plan sets forth the long-range goal "the assured provision of excellent library service for all the residents of the state so that the need for cultural, educational, informational and recreational resources can be met, and the governmental and economic development of the state can be fostered." The short-term objectives designed to reach this goal, and the programs to meet the objectives are described. The need for such programs and the methods of accomplishing and evaluating programs are briefly discussed. The programs, objectives, and the goals are set against the background of the library condition in the state as it exists now. As objectives are met and as programs are carried out, the background will naturally change and new ones will be developed.
