A Proposal to Research and Design Criteria for the Implementation and Establishment of a Neighborhood Information Center in Five Public Libraries in Five Cities: Atlanta, Cleveland, Detroit, Houston, Queene Borough. Annual Report.
Turick, Dorothy Ann
This report summarizes the achievements of the Neighborhood Information Centers Project on a national basis. (Summaries for each of the five cities-Atlanta, Cleveland, Detroit, Houston, and Queens Borough, were submitted separately.) The purposes of the Project are to research the feasibility of the branch library as a Neighborhood Information Center, to determine criteria for planning such a center, and to present an implementation plan for establishing a demonstration center in each city. After describing the background for the project, work products of main project phases, and interim progress reports from each library, comments and recommendations are made about four areas: the question of privacy, the project staff, the publicity and image, and the current status and future prospects. Attached to this report is an issue of "The Open Shelf", which features The Neighborhood Information Centers Project. (CH)
