A Survey of United States Regional Government Depository Libraries.
Kessler, Ridley R., Jr.; Daniel, Evelyn H.
This survey of regional depository libraries grew out of an informal meeting held in the fall of 1987. The meeting's purpose was to allow regional librarians to discuss their shared problems and concerns. A direct result of this meeting was a decision to gather more information about regionals and how they operated, organized and staffed their collections. The questionnaire created to gather this information was organized into 10 sections designed to elicit a wide and diverse body of information about the organization and operation of regional depository libraries: organization/administration; staff; processing; cataloging; automation/computers; statistics; public services; microforms; regional matters; and maps. Forty-five questionnaires were returned (87% response rate). This initial report provides a summary of survey response data for each of the 10 information categories. Three appendices include the regional depository library questionnaire, questionnaire raw data, and regional depository library questionnaire written comments. (MAS)
