News from the State Library of Ohio, 1976
The year 1876 provides the unifying focus of this collection of United States library historical information. Issues that were of concern in that year are reviewed. Discussion of the 1876 Philadelphia meeting of librarians, where a resolution to form the American Library Association was passed, is accompanied by a reproduction of the relevant news article from the "Philadelphia Inquirer." The bulk of the report consists of a review of the history of various university and local libraries in Ohio and a copy of 1876 tables of United States libraries' collection, circulation, and budget statistics.
