Goals, Guidelines and Gauges for Public Library Service in Louisiana.
Louisiana Library Association, Baton Rouge.
A statement of goals, guidelines, and standards for public libraries in the state was developed by the Standards Study Committee, Public Library Section, of the Louisiana Library Association. The goals include the educational, informational, recreational, cultural, and service roles of the library. The guidelines are a detailed description of methods to be used in achieving the goals; they cover the library's place in the community, access to information, individual education needs, media selection policy in relation to population diversity, community oriented programs, funding, administration and personnel, library facilities, and public relations. The gauges consist of some basic standards for materials, personnel, facilities, and hours of service with which individual libraries may be compared. (LS)
