Scientific and Technical Libraries in Kentucky.
Powell, Russell H.; Gleim, David E.
Based on initial questionnaires, plus followup contacts and interviews, this survey documents for the first time the holdings, rates of growth, and information resources available at 72 of Kentucky's scientific and technical libraries. Included are library book collections that emphasize the business, economic, biological, physical, medical, and engineering sciences. The study embraces a wide range of publicly and privately owned libraries, from million-volume university collections to industrial libraries holding only a few hundred specialized titles. Excluded from this study are small hospital libraries, college libraries without a separately administered science collection and public libraries (with the exception of the Louisville Free Public Library). Tables of summary data and a list of cooperative arrangements between these libraries are followed by individual profiles of each library, providing address, subject coverage and special collections, net holdings, loan policy, and hours of operation. There are three indexes to the profiles: institution name, librarian, and subject area. (Author/SL)
