Interdependence in Vermont: An Evaluation of Vermont's Five-Year LSTA Plan.
Vermont State Dept. of Libraries, Montpelier.
This evaluation of Vermont's 5-year LSTA (Library Services and Technology Act) plan begins with an overall report of results in achieving goals and objectives. This section offers an overview of Vermont's geography, population, and history and use of library services. Results are then described for each of the plan's seven goals and related objectives. The next section presents an in-depth evaluation that focuses on two elements: the use of technology in local libraries to strengthen local library services infrastructure and access; and consulting and training for local libraries and librarians resulting in improved services. Lessons learned are summarized, and a brief review of the evaluation process is provided. (MES)
