Long Range Plan for Library Services in Wisconsin, 1995-2000. Bulletin No. 96145.
Wisconsin State Dept. of Public Instruction, Madison. Div. for Libraries and Community Learning.
The purpose of this long-range plan is to describe the status of library development in Wisconsin, the needs and problems of libraries, and the possible ways of meeting these needs over the next 5 years. This plan was developed by the Division for Libraries and Community Learning staff, with advice from the Library Services and Construction Act (LSCA) Advisory Committee and the Council on Library and Network Development. The plan reflects reports submitted to the division, surveys, consultations with librarians, trustees, and various statewide planning efforts and studies involving librarians from around the state. The primary focus of the plan is on statewide and state-level library activities, division statutory requirements and services, and federal LSCA priorities. The long-range plan is intended to provide a broad framework for division and statewide planning activities, as well as provide Wisconsin librarians and others with a framework for local library and system planning efforts. The contents include: (1) characteristics of Wisconsin affecting library services; (2) the Division's organization and mission; (3) the Division's publications; (4) the Division's 1994-95 highlights; (5) goals for Wisconsin library service; (6) LSCA policies; and (7) 1995-96 LSCA activities.
