This summary of the deliberations and proposals of the National Commission on Libraries and Information Science includes brief discussions of programs goals, a needs analysis, and the concerns of both libraries and the private sector. Recommendations for a national program are presented as eight priority objectives, and various facets of the nationwide network concept are discussed--major federal responsibilities; organizational relationships and supporting responsibilities; responsibilities of state governments, the private sector, and the Library of Congress; proposed legislation; and funding. The full report, which was published in 1975, is also available through ERIC (see related document). (JVP)
