Also described are procedures to carry out the activities; methodology that the state library administrative agency will use to evaluate the success of the activities in meeting the goals and priorities; the plan for expenditure of 4% allowed for State library agency administrative cost; procedures that will be used to involve libraries and library users throughout the state in policy decisions regarding implementation of the plan; and assurances.(AEF)
