Eastern Oklahoma Development District Initial Library Plan.
Sand, Larry D.; Gale, Charles
The Eastern Oklahoma Development District (EODD) is a multifaceted planning organization, broadly concerned with the overall welfare of the residents in seven Oklahoma counties. One of its goals is to assure adequate library services to all persons desiring to use them. To assure these services, a plan was initiated to coordinate the library planning of the state, the Department of Libraries and the district library with the social services planning of EODD. Functional activities were initially categorized as preliminary studies, reviews, and analyses to determine (1) which library planning efforts were relevant to those of EODD in providing for a range of social services; (2) the data needs and deficiencies of the district library with the object of sharing common socioeconomic data useful in planning; and (3) economical and effective ways in which EODD can assist the district library in extending services to unserved areas. The initial working period showed that cooperation was successful. Further coordination was strongly recommended, especially with regard to disadvantaged groups, elderly, youth, and poor. (Author/SL)
