A Study of the Library Services Provided by the State Institutions of North Dakota.
Gordon Barnard, Sister
Collected here are library profiles from seven North Dakota institutions including the State Penitentiary and Farm; the State Industrial School; the State Hospital; state schools for the blind, deaf, and mentally retarded; and the Soldiers' Home. General information about the institutions includes the authority and responsibility of the institution, its history, its administration, and its philosophy. Descriptions of the libraries cover administration, funding, facilities, staffing, collections, and plans for library development. There are recommendations for improvement in both institutional and statewide services as well as discussions of library standards. The questionnaire used to develop the profiles and some brief general recommendations also are included. (LS)
