Pennsylvania Library Master Plan Committee Report.
Pennsylvania State Library, Harrisburg.
The Pennsylvania Master Plan Committee, composed of librarians from all types of libraries and also of other interested citizens, reports here on goals, present status, and recommendations for the future of Pennsylvania libraries. After statements of need for a master plan and an outline of its development, goals for effective, widely available library services of high quality are presented. An overview of the present condition of library systems and networks is given, along with the status of public, academic, school, special, and institutional libraries, the state library, and library education. Recommendations are given for improving these libraries and services as well as for financing library services; coordinating library services at the local level; planning, research, and evaluation; and measures for adopting and implementing the plan. Among the extensive appendixes are: comparative figures on numbers of volumes and expenditures of the fifty states; a directory of library cooperatives; maps of Pennsylvania Uniform Regions, institutions of higher education, and district library systems; and organization charts for the state department of education and the proposed reorganization of state library services.
