Wells, Gladys Ann, Comp.
This summary reports the results of the 1985 Survey of States and Territories gathered by the White House Conference on Library and Information Services Task Force (WHCLIST), which focused on library service activities, overall progress made toward the implementation of the resolutions adopted by the 1979 White House Conference on Library and Information Services, as well as the agenda for the proposed 1989 White House Conference. Individual questionnaires completed by respondents from 45 states and 3 territories make up the major part of the report. These questionnaires provide information on legislation authorizing state aid to libraries, other library-related legislation, library construction, resource sharing, literacy/education, school libraries and school library/public library cooperation, access to information, new state publications related to libraries, public awareness efforts, the extension of library services to nontraditional library users, statewide friends groups/citizens library councils, and agenda items for the proposed 1989 White House Conference. Appendices include the American Library Association (ALA) Resolution calling for a Second White House Conference on Library and Information Services; the ALA Resolution requesting UNESCO to declare an International Year of the Library; and a letter of reply from the Deputy Director-General of UNESCO proposing an International Congress on Library Promotion.
