Trends in Higher Education in the Seventies. Minutes of the Meeting (81st, January 27, 1973, Washington, D.C.).
Association of Research Libraries, Washington, DC.
The program portion of this meeting was devoted to the future of higher education in the United States. Dr. Roger Heyns discusses the problems caused by the discrepancy between the national goals which have been stated in legislation and the budget for programs to achieve these goals, and the discrepancy between enacted legislation and funding with respect to welfare, health, education, housing and environment. These problems will eventually lead to a re-examination of national goals and the financial commitments to meet those goals. John Hughes reviews significant acts of Congress of the past year to detect a few clues as to the future of higher education in the seventies. The major portion of these minutes is devoted to business and committee reports of the Association of Research Libraries (ARL). (Other ARL meetings minutes are ED 067115 and LI 004 505-510 and 004 512.) (Author/SJ)
