Long-Range Plan for Library Services in Nevada 1993-1997.
Nevada State Library and Archives, Carson City.
This plan meets the requirements of the Library Services and Construction Act (LSCA) but is also designed to help identify the needs and problems of libraries in the state of Nevada and to determine the possibilities of meeting those needs. It is intended to provide a broad framework for statewide planning activities. There are currently 24 public libraries serving the Nevada public. Although public library service is available in all areas of the state, some regions have only a minimal level of service. The following goals are defined for library service in Nevada: (1) to strengthen library service for inadequately served areas; (2) to improve library services to all segments of the population through life-long learning and culturally relevant activities; (3) to provide and strengthen library services to special needs groups; (4) to strengthen public library services and resources provided by major urban libraries that serve as regional resource centers; (5) to provide and strengthen library services to residents of state-supported institutions; (6) to construct and modernize public library facilities; (7) to facilitate interlibrary cooperation and resource sharing; and (8) to strengthen the state library agency. Specific objectives are spelled out for each of these goals. Attachments list LSCA activities, the national education goals, and social, population, and income data for Nevada. (SLD)
