Long Range Program for Georgia Public Libraries.
Georgia State Dept of Education, Atlanta. Div. of Public Library Services.
The development of each area of Georgia's long range plan required the identification of present and projected needs, the definition of objectives and action plans to meet those needs, establishment of periodic evaluation procedures, dissemination of information, coordination with all types of libraries and their programs, allocations of funds for services and construction, and interlibrary cooperation. The Delphi Technique of Forecasting the direction libraries will take in the next 10 years was used by the state agency in determining the goals and objectives for the program. A brief review of the current activities in the state's academic and school libraries, the state Division of Public Library Services (DPLS), and the Georgia Library Information Network (GLIN) provide a background for the statement of needs and of goals and specific objectives projected through 1982. Criteria for project management and library construction programs are outlined. Appendixes include state library organization charts. (SL)
