This report begins with the governor's designation of the North Dakota State Library as the official state agency responsible for the state's participation in the 1991 White House Conference on Library and Information Services, describes budgetary problems encountered by the library in planning for state activities, and lists the 12 members of the planning committee. Committee planning for regional meetings is also described, including the selection of 16 towns and 1 Native American reservation as sites for these meetings. Information is then provided on planning for the state conference, the conference issues and resolutions, the selection of national delegates, conference evaluation method, and the budget for the conference. Concluding the report are the names of the official delegates and alternates chosen to represent North Dakota at the 1991 White House Conference on Library and Information Services (WHCLIS), and a list of the 30 recommendations adopted by the conference delegates. It is noted that the format of the state conference was designed to address the three national themes of literacy, productivity, and democracy as well as the four topics identified from discussions at the regional meetings: equal access, productivity through marketing, literacy, and preservation and access to public information.
