Master Plan for the Development of Library Services in the State of Maryland, 1976-1980.
Maryland State Dept. of Education, Baltimore. Div. of Library Development and Services.
The master plan for development of library services in the state of Maryland provides analyses of library collections, staff, and facilities in public libraries, public schools, and academic institutions. It identifies major strengths and weaknesses and recommends a framework of systematic progress for the years 1976-1980, setting a priority on improved state support for public library financing. The plan emphasizes the need for increased interdependence among libraries of all types and makes priority recommendations for joint planning, development, and sharing of resources and services at local, regional, and state levels. It contains a series of recommendations designed to implement a state program to utilize the regional library resource centers, the state library resource center, and other major library collections in the state and to reinforce and supplement the resources of other libraries through a planned state library network.
