Guidelines for State Documents with Selected Commentary.
American Library Association, Chicago, IL. Government Documents Round Table.
Designed to make state documents more easily accessible and more widely available to the general public, these guidelines focus on the responsibilities that should be assumed at the state level by the library community of each state. The first guideline, Minimum State Servicing, is the most general. The Checklist, Inputting into Data Bases, and Depository Legislation guidelines address specific activities pertinent to state documents within the state. The fifth guideline, Distribution Center Activities, supplements the first four guidelines by listing additional activities appropriate for state level action. It is noted that these guidelines have been adopted by the American Library Association (ALA) and represent ALA policy. They have also been endorsed by the Chief Officers of State Library Agencies (COSLA). (BBM)
