The Alabama Long Range Program for Library Development, 1989-1993.
Alabama Public Library Service, Montgomery.
This report on the 1989-93 long range plan for the Alabama Public Library Service (APLS) begins by providing lists of the members of the Alabama Public Library Service Executive Board and Alabama Advisory Council on Public Libraries; a list of APLS management staff; background information on APLS and the purpose of this program; an overview of the demographics of the Alabama library public, including changes in selected population characteristics; and the results of needs assessments of special population groups, i.e., the disadvantaged, the handicapped, the elderly, minorities, the institutionalized, and limited English-speaking persons. The APLS mission statement, goals, and objectives, are then presented together with tasks that will contribute toward the fulfillment of each objective. Appended materials include maps showing multi-county and single county library systems, counties without countywide library service, and independent libraries. Also appended are one graph, five tables, and eight additional maps depicting the results of statistical analyses of demographic data for the state. (EW)
