Recommendations formulated by the New Jersey Library Association for its public library system are intended to help identify problems, provide a framework for further discussion and contribute to the continuing study of the New Jersey Library Network. Since the enactment of the State Library Aid Act of 1967, a network of 25 area reference libraries supported by four regional research libraries has been established. While general agreement exists about the progress of the system, concern is expressed about the low levels of state aid and inequities in funding distribution. Major revised goals for the program call for basic library services at public, school and academic libraries to be within easy reach of all citizens; availability to all of more specialized library materials and services; and integration of a coordinated state network of services with library resources nationwide. To achieve these goals, specific funding programs by state and municipal governments are recommended. (RAA)
