Study and Survey of Rural Libraries in Five Counties of Northwest Ohio. Volume 1.
Rees, Louise F.
In an effort to improve library services, the public libraries of the five northwest counties of Ohio studied possibilities for cooperation in the region. The study included: (1) surveys of the libraries by questionnaires, interviews, citizen surveys, and examination of available information; (2) workshops on reference services, weeding, and publicity; (3) compilation of union lists of reference books, periodical and newspaper holdings, and materials on Ohio; and (4) recommendations and suggestions for further planning and action. The results of the study are reported in both narrative and tabular form. In addition, the appendixes contain inclusive lists of the 23 libraries' holdings of periodicals, newspapers, and reference works and samples of forms used in the survey. (LS)
