New Jersey Library Network Protocol Committee. Final Report.
Steckman, Elizabeth, Ed.
This report documents the findings and recommendations of a study conducted by the New Jersey Library Protocol Committee, which was formed to study and recommend changes in the current organizational and operational structure of the existing statewide multitype library network and in the patterns for networking and informational services among various network components. The committee was also charged with recommending a set of procedures to be followed by network libraries for the exchange of information and materials, and with recommending policies and procedures for the proposed network should pending legislation be enacted. In the process of conducting its study and making recommendations, the committee examined previous library networking studies, New Jersey library legislation, and the operations of the existing network. This report presents information on the current library network, including its historical development, origins, and operations; reports of subcommittees on bibliographic access, interlibrary loan, reference referral, photocopy, statistics, and procedures, and an additional recommendation by the full committee; and two prototype manuals for (1) reference referral and (2) interlibrary loan and photocopy procedures. Footnotes, a list of documents consulted, and a copy of the charge to the committee are included. (BBM)
