Library Space Standards at the California State University. A Report to the Legislature in Response to Supplemental Language to the 1990-91 State Budget.
California State Postsecondary Education Commission, Sacramento.
This report examines the newly proposed systemwide library plan of the California State University (CSU), which will govern the planning and development of library space on CSU campuses for the next 10 years. The commission's report evaluates the state university's updated library space standards and discusses policy issues that relate to on-site and off-site compact storage systems for library materials. The report is presented in four sections: (1) Background and Conclusions; (2) Present and Proposed Space Standards; (3) Policy Questions for Further Study; and (4) Remote versus On-Site Storage. Follow-up information on the CSU library plan is requested by February 1, 1991, and April 1, 1991. The commission's staff will then review the additional material and submit a supplemental report to the commission in June for its approval. Appended materials, which make up the major part of the report, are as follows: (1) state university submission (June 1990), which includes the documents "Library Planning in the California State University: 1986/87-1996/97,""CSU Capital Outlay Program Planning for Libraries; Policies, Standards, and Procedures," and "Justification and Cost Impact of the New CSU Library Policies and Standards"; (2) the commission response (August 16, 1990); (3) state university response (October 1990); (4) commission letter (November 7, 1990); (5) executive summary of a systemwide library space study for 1984-2004 prepared by HBW Associates; (6) commission comments on the CSU library space study, a report to the state university in response to budget control language in the 1984-85 Budget Act (January 1985); (7) state university materials (January 1985); (8) ACRL college library standards (1986); (9) state university invitation for bid; (10) an article by John Kountz, "Robots in the Library: Automated Storage and Retrieval Systems"; and (11) cost data on library storage.
