Establishment of a Resources Library System.
The purpose of the Resources Development Internship Project was to catalog the collection of the U.S. Bureau of Land Management Montana State Office (MSO) library, which consisted of approximately 1,400 volumes of diverse library materials. Other objectives were to improve access to the materials, and develop a general system of library operation including maintenance of the collection and services to MSO and District personnel. Development of services involved interviewing selected MSO personnel in order to determine their library needs, developing a loan system for the District offices, contacting area libraries and the Department of the Interior Library in Washington, D.C., in order to extend their services to the MSO, and improving on the content of the collection. The written product of the project consisted of procedure manuals for the upkeep of the library, user guidelines for both MSO and District personnel, a library director, policy statements, and recommendations for further library growth and development.
