North Dakota State Plan for Long-Range Library Development.
North Dakota State Library Commission, Bismarck.
Programs for North Dakota's long-range library development have been planned which will provide for meeting the assessed needs of the state's population insofar as funds permit, and insofar as it is possible to satisfy these needs through the provision of public library service. The assessment of needs of student clientele and the development of programs to satisfy these needs by state supported academic libraries is the responsibility of each college and university and the State Board of Higher Education, and of school libraries by each local school district and the State Department of Public Instruction. The State Library's role is to provide supplementary resources and services and to coordinate the various library programs and projects insofar as possible. The programs set forth in this plan are: State Institutional Library Service; Library Service to the Physically Handicapped; Library Service to the State Government; Library Service to the Disadvantaged; Statewide Library Service, Planning, Research, Education; Library Service to Special Groups of Persons; Incentive grants for the establishment and improvement of public library services; Grants-in-aid for improved library service; Interlibrary cooperation; and Construction of public library facilities.
