A Study of the Combined School Public Library. Phase III.
Aaron, Shirley L.
The development of a checklist was the principal activity of the third part of a 3-phase study examining the potential of cooperative ventures and combination libraries for improving school and public library services in Florida. This report includes the checklist, which was designed for use by community members working with professional library personnel in deciding on the best alternative for library services in a particular locality, together with instructions for its completion and the evaluation of responses. A summary of the major findings of a national study of combined school public libraries conducted in the first phase is followed by a discussion of the major conclusion reached: it is unlikely that a community able to support or now supporting separate types of libraries will offer better school and public library service through a combined program, although the combined program presents a possible alternative to limited or non-existent services under certain conditions. Recommendations based on findings of the study conclude the report. (CMV)
