South Dakota State Library, Pierre.
This document presents the South Dakota statewide plan for library and information services for 1998-2002. The first section summarizes the use of technology to deliver library services from 1913 to the present. The second section addresses building toward stronger libraries in 2002, including themes from focus group discussions held in 1997, demographics, libraries and networks in South Dakota, the South Dakota Library Network, the government documents depository system, the MINITEX Library Information Network, and statewide services. The third section covers building information equity, including the role of the library on the information highway and the role of federal support. This section describes the following goals and related objectives for the State Library: (1) to enhance the delivery of information to citizens through a combination of improved technology and continuing education that will enable librarians and staff to provide the highest possible level of service to patrons; (2) to emphasize special library services that contribute to improved access to information and library services for all people of the state, delivering the information in the appropriate format, at the appropriate location, and within the timeframe required by the patron; and (3) to provide equal access to information for citizens no matter what their age, economic status, or place of residence.
