South Carolina State Library, Columbia.
Goals and objectives for library services, 1975-1980, are presented by the South Carolina Advisory Council on Libraries as a supplement to the original South Carolina State Program for Library Development, 1972-1977. Goals for the state library are in the areas of financial support, reference and interlibrary loan service, centralized programs, consultant services, services to state government, library planning, and current national and state concerns. For public library service, goals are described for personnel standards, administration, and training; extension services to those in rural areas, and to the disadvantaged, and aged and homebound, and those of limited English-speaking ability; county services; metropolitan library services; and facilities. Standards, institutional support, consultant service, personnel, materials, service to professional staff, and special programs are discussed in relation to institutional library goals. Service to the blind and physically handicapped, interlibrary cooperation, area reference resource centers, public relations, a microfilm catalog shelflist, federal documents depository, ERIC, the interlibrary loan code, and intertype library cooperation are also covered. A final chapter contains an assessment of need for and feasibility of library service for those with limited English speaking ability. (LS)
