Libraries are for People! But Are the People for Libraries?
Ohio State Library, Columbus.
The 1974 Ohio Governor's Conference on Library and Information Services was the first in a series of meetings mandated by the Long Range Program for the Improvement of Library Services developed by the State Library Board to give citizens a voice in the future of their libraries. Information was gathered on the kinds of libraries--school, university, public, institution, special, and state--now operating in Ohio and their funding sources. Ohio finances its public libraries partly through personal property taxes and partly through intangible funds. These sources have so far proven inadequate. High on the list of priorities of citizens participating in the conference was a better and more reliable source of funds and a better access to information through library networking and interlibrary cooperation. Development of multimedia collections was also given high priority. (KC)
