Role of the Public Library in the National Program. Related Paper No. 2.
Martin, Allie Beth
In the future, changes in the composition of communities will require public libraries to shift the emphasis of their service to adults. Growth in technology and the knowledge industry will also require adjustments. Urban, suburban, and rural libraries face differing needs to improve service. The National Program for Library and Information Services could help overcome some of the barriers to effective public library service. It could aid in financing through increased state and federal funding and in personnel management, selection, and training through programs for library education. It could encourage utilization of technology and accelerate interlibrary and interinstitutional cooperation through a coordinated network of networks. The libraries of the nation have much to gain from a coordinated federal library program. (Author/PF)
