White House Conference on Library and Information Services. Issue Briefing Book.
White House Conference on Library and Information Services.
Intended for use by the delegates to the second White House Conference on Library and Information Services (WHCLIS2), this issue briefing book contains national issues which have been identified at the governors' pre-White House conferences in the various states and territories. The issues have been assigned to 10 topical areas--Access, Networking, Technologies, Personnel, National Information Policies, Preservation, Training, Marketing, Services/Programs, and Governance--and the format for each issue includes the Title, the Issue Statement, Background, Questions for Discussion, and Suggested Solutions. The remainder of the format, to be completed by the delegates at the conference, will include the actual recommendation, its justification, and the implementation strategy as well as its impact on the three main themes of the conference. Notes provided for each issue refer back to the actual state recommendations used by Topic Committee members to consolidate the 1,100 recommendations submitted by the states and territories into the less than 100 issues presented in this notebook. Introductory materials include the conference agenda, recommendations and process pointers, an index to the individual issues, an index to the statistical tables which were provided on site, and the proposed conference rules.
