Report of the LRL Survey Committee; For the Legislative Reference Librarians Section, National Conference of State Legislatures. ECS Report No. 79.
Mills, Gladys H.
A questionnaire was sent to all librarians on the Council of State Governments' state legislative reference librarians list and the directors of state library agencies in an effort to provide a data base for future studies and the development of standards in specific areas of legislative reference operations. Replies were received from 48 states. Variation was found in all aspects of legislative reference services--especially in staffing, funding, and scope of services offered. The automation capabilities in the states differed but were being utilized more and more for information purposes. Greater interstate cooperation was needed in the exchange of information and publications. The survey findings are shown in great detail along with the questionnaire, a sample response from one state, a directory of officials or agencies responsible for state documents, and a list of respondents.
