SLICE Office Report for the Quarters October 1, 1973 to December 31, 1973 and January 1, 1974 to March 31, 1974.
Southwestern Library Interstate Cooperative Endeavor, Dallas, TX.
Two quarters activities of the Southwestern Library Interstate Cooperative Endeavor (SLICE) are reported. The final study of the legal aspects of establishing a Regional Interstate Library Network in the Southwest is printed in full. This study indicates that an interstate compact may be the best organizational, financial, and legal structure for interstate networking. The American Library Association Institute on Alternatives in Bibliographic Networking (New Orleans, February 28th-March 1, 1974) is reviewed, summaries of all papers are presented, and two full papers on bibliographic data standards are included. The preliminary data on a survey of 904 libraries in the six Southwestern Library Association states is presented. Other SLICE projects are reviewed including the implementation of Continuing Education for Library Staffs (CELS). (Author/PF)
