The State of State Documents: Past, Present, Future.
Olds, Brenda F. Shelton, Ed.
This report, prepared cooperatively by the Planning Committee of the Austin, Texas Legislative Reference Library and 14 participating states, is intended to give participants an overview of the status of state documents in these states and of nationwide state documents planning. It is also intended to provide necessary background information for more interstate cooperation in state documents. The first section describes nationwide programs--Center for Research Libraries, Council of State Governments, Information Handling Services, and the Library of Congress "Monthly Checklist of State Publications." Guidelines for minimum state servicing of state documents and a statement of the American Association of State Libraries follow. State reports are given for Arizona, Arkansas, Colorado, Kansas, Louisiana, Nebraska, Nevada, New Mexico, North Dakota, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Texas, Utah, and Wyoming. Additional topics covered are selection and acquisition aids, selected reference sources (including a comparative chart of federal/state sources), revised standards for state author heading lists, Hordusky Questionnaire on State Document Checklists, and depository and model legislation. A separate section covers checklists--guidelines, current checklists, and summaries of responses to a New York State documents questionnaire. (KP)
