Southwestern Library Association, Stillwater, OK.; Southeastern Library Association, Tucker, GA.
Charged with the responsibility of determining the best way to plan for solar technology information transfer within the state of Texas, participants in the Planning Conference for Solar Technology Information Transfer met to discuss the many ongoing activities related to energy information dissemination, to analyze the resources available in Texas for both the development of solar technology and for its transfer, and to make recommendations for further action. They resolved (1) that a citizens' subcommittee study the feasibility of planning and implementing a closely coordinated energy information dissemination system which would utilize all available resources, especially public libraries; (2) that this subcommittee include a representative from the Texas State Library, and (3) that the League of Women Voters be informed of the conference resolutions and asked to submit them to the Texas Energy Advisory Council. The creation of an energy information center specific to the needs of all Texans was also urged. Appendices to the report include brochures and pamphlets which concern the transfer of solar energy information. (FM)
