Nine papers make up this proceedings on bookmobile services to rural areas. The primary theme of the conference was "programming," with emphasis on quality of services and how to market the bookmobile in communities. Although the primary focus is on rural library services, many of the ideas in these papers can be applied to metropolitan areas. The article titles and authors are: "Quality Bookmobile Programming," by John Christenson; "Quality of Rural Bookmobile Service: Research Findings," by Bernard Vavrek; "Reference Service and Peer Coach Training," by Nancy Bolin; "Information and Referral Application to Bookmobile Service," by John Christenson; "Marketing Principles and the Bookmobile," by Joseph Grunenwald; "From Horse Drawn Carts to...?" an examination of the history and future of bookmobiles by Ed Klee, Rob Rapp, and Robert Saunter; "Bookmobile Specification and Design for the Future," by Stanley C. Fry, Russ Topping, and A. Wayne Baehr; "Automation to Improve Services," by Jonathan Louden, Katherine Phenix and Ann Mort; and a conference "Wrap-Up" by Bernard Vavrek. (TES)
