National Commission on Libraries and Information Science, Washington, DC.
This report details the library/information policy and planning activities of the National Commission on Libraries and Information Science (NCLIS) for the fiscal year 1984. During the year, the NCLIS placed particular emphasis on several areas of immediate concern: the importance of library and information services in lifelong learning; the improvement of access to information for special population groups (including elderly persons, rural and urban residents, and the functionally illiterate); and the crucial role of information in building a more productive society. In addition to discussions of each of the above issues, the report lists NCLIS commission members and commission staff, FY 1984 highlights, staff activities, international operations, and future plans. Appendices comprise: the National Commission on Libraries and Information Science Act (Public Law 91-345); a summary of the report, "Toward a National Program for Library and Information Services: Goals for Action"; lists of NCLIS publications; projects and former members; and a fiscal statement for FY 1984.
