Missouri Governor's Conference on Library and Information Services (Jefferson City, Missouri, November 16-17, 1990): Final Report.
Missouri State Library, Jefferson City.
This final report on the Missouri Governor's Conference on Library and Information Services begins by describing activities during the planning stage, the selection of 200 delegates to the conference from applications submitted by individuals, and publicity prior to the conference. The charge to the delegates by Monteria Hightower, Missouri State Librarian, is then presented, followed by excerpts from major presentations on the three themes of the 1991 White House Conference on Library and Information Services: (1) "Library and Information Services for Democracy" (Thomas F. Eagleton); (2) "Library and Information Services for Literacy" (Lois A. Bader); and (3) "Library and Information Services for Productivity" (A. Drue Jennings). The political process used to select 12 delegates to the White House Conference is described and the delegates are listed under the categories they represent, i.e., library professionals, library supporters, government officials, and the general public. The resolutions adopted by the delegates to the state conference are listed in priority order under the appropriate theme--democracy, literacy, or productivity. Resolutions concerning funding for Missouri libraries are also listed. The presentation of the conference resolutions to the governor is noted and the role of the delegates at the national conference is briefly described. Lists of organizations exhibiting at the conference and the members of the governor's conference planning committee are included. (BBM)
