United States National Commission on Libraries and Information Science. Annual Report, 1986-1987.
National Commission on Libraries and Information Science, Washington, DC.
During fiscal year 1986-1987, the four major program thrusts of the National Commission on Libraries and Information Science (NCLIS) were: (1) access to information; (2) information technology and productivity; (3) improving library and information services to meet changing needs; and (4) policy planning and advice. NCLIS participated in a series of trilateral talks on information policy questions at the international level and continued its programs promoting literacy and basic reading programs. The first open forum for public comment and hearings on sensitive but unclassified information was sponsored by NCLIS during this time period. The year was also marked by a national campaign to provide all school-aged children with library cards, a nationally televised Bicentennial program and teach-in about the U.S. Constitution, a program on library partnership and programs for older adults, and advice to Congressional staff on enactments of library and education acts.
