A Study of the Utilization of Local History and Genealogy Collections in Public Libraries in Ohio.
Daugherty, Beth
Local history/genealogy collections are found in approximately 60% of Ohio public libraries. These collections range from fully established large collections to those in the process of being organized. A survey was made of 140 of these public libraries to determine how the collections are utilized. Areas such as organization, management, policies and procedures, programs and projects, electronic resources, use of volunteers, and publicity are covered. Opinions of local history/genealogy specialists are included regarding funding, training, and time allotted to the collection. Responses are tabulated for all libraries, as well as by size of library. This study furnishes an overview of the status of local history/genealogy collections in Ohio public libraries. It also provides a general guide to creating an effective and accessible local history/genealogy collection. A copy of the questionnaire is appended. Contains 23 references. (Author/MES)
