Small Library Planning Program: Report of the Self Study.
Valparaiso Univ., IN.
This report presents the results and recommendations of a year-long study begun in September, 1979, of the facilities, funding, staffing, and services at Valparaiso University's Moellering Library. A comprehensive review of the study's recommendations with respect to the library's budget, institutional role, staff requirements, space needs, environment, collections, and technical systems is followed by a set of working papers upon which the recommendations are based. The working papers are divided into two groups. The first group comprises situation analyses and includes profiles of Valparaiso University, American higher education, Moellering Library, and the library profession, as well as outlines of the planning assumptions that resulted from these profiles. The second group comprises needs assessments for Moellering Library in the areas of institutional policy-making, library facilities and equipment, technical services, personnel, public services, collection development, and management. Each of the working papers includes its own reference list and data tables. The 15 appendices to the report include an organizational flow chart for Moellering Library, a library profile, and a copy of a survey form used for the study. (JL)
