Annual Report of the Southwestern Library Interstate Cooperative Endeavor (SLICE) Project of the Southwestern Library Association (1st, October 1, 1971 to December 31, 1972); and Final Report for Council on Library Resources.
Southwestern Library Interstate Cooperative Endeavor, Dallas, TX.
The purposes of this annual report of the Southwestern Library Interstate Cooperative Endeavor (SLICE) are twofold. One purpose is to document the activities, achievements, failures, finances, and philosophy of the SLICE Project during the first fourteen months of its existence. The second purpose is to attempt to clearly communicate with all interested parties on the status, pitfalls, and potentials of a library interest cooperative endeavor in the six Southwestern Library Association states. Details of the first year's activities are presented and analyzed. It is believed that the organization, financial, and programmatic record might be of value to others contemplating a project similar to SLICE. The three main objectives of the first year's operation reported upon here are: sharing of the MARC-0 Data Base, a regional plan for a bibliographic network, and continuing education activities for librarians focusing on improving library services to the disadvantaged ethnic groups and a systematic planning and evaluation methodology. Also included are an evaluation of the first year, the financial statement and a projection of the future. (Other documents on SLICE are ED 065 147 through 065 150) (Author/SJ)
