Designed to serve as a basic resource document for the White House Conference on Library and Information Services, this summary of pre-conference activities provides an analysis of the approximately 3,000 resolutions and recommendations generated by the 57 state, territorial, and topical conferences held in 1977-79 to secure input to the conference agenda from citizens; formal statements from more than 50 professional associations; and letters from concerned citizens. This analysis identified 16 goals to be discussed at the conference in the context of five conference themes--library and information services for meeting personal needs, for enhancing lifelong learning, for improving organizations and the professions, for effectively governing our society, and for increasing international understanding and cooperation. A summary of the report with brief discussions of each of these goals is followed by a detailed outline of observed issues and resolutions for action at various levels to meet the goals. The 16 implementation concerns presented in a similar format range from funding and taxation, legislation, resource sharing and networking, and physical access, to public awareness, and preservation and storage of materials. A participant list includes the dates and places for state conferences, participating organizations, and special meetings sponsored by NCLIS. (SW)
