Determination of the Administrative and Functional Characteristics of a National Microform Agency. Final Report.
Miller, Edward A.
In 1971, 67 persons at 32 libraries and 11 microform industries were interviewed to ascertain the acceptability of a permanent national microform agency, to determine the priority functions of such an agency and to specify its organization. It was recommended that the "Office of Micrographic Activities" be established under the administrative control of a research-oriented library association and that its priority functions be to: (1) support the development of library microform standards, (2) develop standards for microform equipment, (3) evaluate microform publications, (4) evaluate microform equipment, (5) provide information and education services, (6) serve as liaison between libraries and the microform industry, (7) serve as ombudsman for individual libraries on microform matters, and (8) encourage research and development. The report includes 15 references. (KB)
