The Guidelines are divided into four sections: (1) Administration, which includes management, funding, staffing, supervision, stops, evaluation of service, collection development, and marketing/public relations; (2) Public Service, which includes circulation services, information services, and target audiences; (3) Bookmobile Vehicle Construction Guidelines, which cover specifications for size, the chassis, the body, interior furnishings, heating and air conditioning, auxiliary power, driver's area design, applicable regulations and laws, safety equipment, important miscellaneous items, and optional equipment; and (4) Bookmobile Maintenance, which recommends following all maintenance and warranty documents, developing and following a schedule of maintenance, having a reliable mechanic and convenient garage available, daily and periodic maintenance, generator maintenance, and a back up delivery system.
