Bob, Murray L.; And Others
A brief overview of this survey and plan for library cooperation is provided by a summary of key recommendations based on the identification of major needs, plus interviews, statistical analysis, materials checklists, and questionnaires. Priorities are indicated by grouping these recommendations in 10 phases. The main body of the report provides background information; discussion of relevant national trends; the history of local and state library cooperation; statistics on libraries in the two counties; results of surveys--questionnaires sent to library users and to library directors, telephone and in-person interviews, and a materials questionnaire sent to each library; a summary of needs as perceived by users and directors; a plan for regional library services; and general observations on the study. Appendices include footnotes, copies of the questionnaires used, acronyms, an organizational chart, separate lists of persons interviewed and those who attended meetings, and a bibliography. (JVP)
