South Carolina Connects through Libraries: Five Year Plan, FY 1997 - FY 2002 under the Library Services and Technology Act (P.L. 104-208).
South Carolina State Library, Columbia.
This Library Services and Technology Act Five Year Plan was prepared in compliance with Section 224 State Plans of the Library Services and Technology Act (Public Law 104-208). The goal of this plan is to assist South Carolina libraries in providing a high level of information services to all South Carolinians, regardless of the type of library they use. The report begins with a discussion of the purpose and uses of the Library Services and Technology Act, and a profile of South Carolina's library needs. Pie charts follow, showing the state's population by different categories. The libraries of South Carolina are then described (The South Carolina State Library, public libraries, academic libraries, school library media centers, and special libraries). The Library Services and Technology Act goals are then outlined. These goals are: (1) to provide all South Carolina citizens with access to a wide variety of information; (2) to assist public libraries in developing programs and services to meet the needs of their patrons; and (3) to improve library services to all South Carolinians through training of library personnel and to provide for better informed public library trustees and supporters. Goals for evaluation of the Library Services and Technology Act program and administration of the act are also included. (AEF)
