Meeting the Challenge: Long Range Program for Library Development in Illinois, 1973-1978. A Report on Progress with Some Plans for the Future.
Illinois State Library, Springfield.
A previous document, with a similar title for 1972-77 (ED 070 476), set out long range goals for statewide development of Illinois libraries. According to the present report, progress has been made toward: increasing the number of local libraries and population served; increasing income and expenditures for libraries; augmenting media collections; expanding systems and networks; enhancing cooperation between school and public libraries; updating and enlarging physical facilities; improving service to the culturally and economically disadvantaged, prisoners, the blind, and the physically handicapped; and increasing use of the central technical processing operation. Some objectives were modified, notably in relation to networks, in which new concepts in multitype library cooperation are being explored. (LS)
