USOE And The Library Role.
Ottina, John R.
In light of today's inflation and the changing priorities of the present Administration, the Office of Education (OE) has taken careful stock of its inventory of programs and has attempted to plan rigorously for the needs of the present and the future. Over the years, OE expenditures on library programs have had significant impact on public, school, and academic libraries. Now, the very success of these funding programs, and the assumption that they can now be better handled by state and local agencies, has prompted the Office of Education to gradually phase out funding, and to consider new initiatives which conform to a known Administration posture--that all Federal initiatives be closely tied to local innovative services. The proposed Information Partnership Act is based on this percept; that the Federal government has a joint role with the states and localities. The Act's purpose is to encourage, support, and provide incentives to local, state and regional groups to work together to provide more accessible and comprehensive information services to more people. Included will be support of a wide range of cooperative information networks and of new information delivery systems for all types of libraries. (SL)
