A Library Program for Fairfield County, Connecticut.
Little (Arthur D.), Inc., Cambridge, MA.
Interviews, questionnaires and on-site visits were used in this study to analyze present cooperative efforts, to determine the feasibility of further cooperative efforts among all types of libraries and to recommend a specific program of interlibrary cooperation for the libraries of Fairfield, Connecticut. From the results collected, the study concludes that the public libraries are not receiving the level of local financial support needed for adequate library service. Further cooperation and coordination of services and materials is therefore recommended. The following specific recommendations are made: the development of a three-year pilot program of interlibrary cooperation, a cooperative acquisitions program, interlibrary loan and reciprocal borrowing, a ready reference service, a major publicity program to increase financial support; and the expansion of certain existing programs.
