Louisiana State Library Institutional Library Pilot Program. An Evaluation: November 5-27, 1974.
Vedder, Marion H.
The Louisiana State Library reviewed its Pilot Library Program to determine its effect on future library development in state institutions. The program was a cooperative endeavor between the state library, an individual institution, and the state agency responsible for administering this institution. Mental, charitable, and penal institutions were included. Each institutional library was evaluated by American Library Association (ALA) standards according to general impressions, budget formulation, personnel problems and physical facilities. It was concluded that the Pilot Library Program should be continued and that the state library should adopt national library standards. Administration and staff should be made more aware of budgeting and personnel. (Author/DS)
