A Closer Look: A Community Analysis and Library Evaluation of Wake County.
Lovett, Valerie W., Ed.
Prepared as a requirement for state aid, this self-evaluation makes eight recommendations for the future of the Wake County Library System: (1) formation of a single library administrative unit entirely funded by the county; (2) preparation of written goals and objectives for library service; (3) preparation of a library organizational handbook; (4) a prioritized survey of personnel staffing; (5) continued development of staff training programs; (6) expansion of automated operations to include circulation and other technical services; (7) increased levels of funding for collection development; and (8) a facilities study to establish a new library system headquarters within seven years. An in-depth study of the community served, and an overview of the library system with profiles of selected libraries provide budgeting background information for the North Carolina State Library. Appendices include book selection procedures and policies and a self-study library standards evaluation. A bibliography provides 33 references. (RAA)
