Library Services and Construction Act. Long Range Plan, 1982-1986 Updates.
This 1982-86 update to long-range planning designed to continue the improvement of library facilities and services in Texas includes a review of how the plan developed, the various environmental factors affecting library operations, the present development of libraries, information needs and approaches to satisfying those needs, and methods for evaluating established programs. This update includes input from long-range plans prepared by the library systems working in tandem with their elected advisory councils, as well as a discussion of the new formal relationships developed between academic institutions and public libraries and between academic institutions and service areas of the Texas State Library. Elements of the plan are addressed in separate sections: purposes, library needs and plans of action, evaluation and criteria, dissemination of Library Services and Construction Act (LSCA) information, coordination of LSCA programs with institutions of higher education and public schools, policies and procedures for allocation of Title I funds, Title II construction program criteria, and Title III demonstration of interlibrary cooperation. A map of the Texas regional library system and the Texas Library Association districts is provided. (RAA)
