Wisconsin State Dept. of Public Instruction, Madison. Div. of Library Services.
Discussion groups met to address the following seven problems prominent in the young people's and children's departments of Wisconsin libraries: (1) decline of hardback circulation; (2) stealing and vandalism; (3) facilitating user self-help without fragmenting collections; (4) recruitment and orientation of volunteers; (5) censorship; (6) staff intolerance toward children; and (7) revitalizing long-running programs. Each discussion resulted in a list of coping strategies. For some problems, bibliographies and supporting documents were compiled. (EMH)
