Information for the Community.
Kochen, Manfred, Ed.; Donohue, Joseph C., Ed.
The 17 essays collected in this text are concerned with measuring community information needs (especially in health and welfare) and designing library service systems to satisfy those needs. Part I provides background which helps to identify the needs of individuals and groups and traces the development of information and referral services. Part II describes existing community information services, and parts III and IV deal with the present status of relevant research. (EMH)
