Five-Year Plan for Statewide Library Development in Maine.
Maine State Library, Augusta.
In addition to meeting the requirements of the Library Services and Construction Act, this five-year plan reflects the intent and strategies outlined in LD 828--the current (1973) state legislation creating regional library systems in Maine. The broad goal of the five year program is consistent with both: development and coordination of the services and resources of all types of libraries/media centers in order to achieve equalization of access to total library resources for all Maine people. From this broad goal is developed a series of sub-goals, each representing a project of the General Loan and Reference Division or the Library Development Division. The section listing the sub-goals also lists a corresponding target group project. For each project the following information is provided: implementation steps, evaluation, fiscal years and outcomes. The appendixes include a general description of ongoing projects, economic and demographic information, Maine Library Association minimum standards for public libraries (1971) and the state library organizational chart.
