Report of the Advisory Committee on Planning for the Academic Libraries of New York State 1973.
In 1971, an advisory committee was charged with developing guidelines for planning the integration and utilization of academic library resources in New York State for the period of 1990. Their report discusses the general problems and possibilities of library cooperation in general and in the specific situation in the state. Topics covered include: equitable distribution of effort, cooperative acquisitions, joint library storage, facsimile transmission, library labor sharing, data centers, nonprint information services, continuing education programs for librarians and instruction in library use. Major recommendations are given for the role of the State Education Department and the individual libraries in effecting functional and economical cooperation. The existing 3Rs program is seen as an organizational model, and interface with it is suggested to provide access to non-academic libraries. Two Subcommittee Reports complete this document. One, on educational technology, recommends improved access to nonprint materials and proposes a model for a regional media center. The second report sets forth quantitative standards for library collections, staff and facilities in 2- and 4-year institutions. (SL)
