National Library Planning. Minutes of the Ninety-Third Meeting of the Association of Research Libraries, October 25-26, 1978, Washington, D.C.
Association of Research Libraries, Washington, DC.
This account of the 93rd meeting of the Association of Research Libraries (ARL) presents both the Washington and ARL perspectives on national library planning with emphasis on periodicals, bibliographic control, and libraries and information services. These viewpoints are presented by six speakers on two panels with a discussion following each panel presentation. The panel on Washington perspectives calls for a National Periodical Center with a centralized authority and a national bibliographic system to work intensively in the areas of bibliography, national collections, management, professional education, and research and analysis. Planning and funding for the White House Conference on Libraries and Information Services are also discussed. The panel of ARL reactors calls for a more active response from ARL libraries on national library planning decisions and for the establishment of some sort of leadership mechanism. This panel also endorses the need to set forth purposes, objectives, and needs. Recommendations of the ARL Task Force on Bibliographic Control are presented in response to a presentation by a member of the Washington panel on national bibliographic control. A report of the business meeting of ARL is included, and task force reports are appended. (CWM)
