Confusing What Is Most Wanted with What Is Most Used: A Crisis in Public Library Priorities Today.
Shearer, Kenneth
Public Libraries, v32 n4 p193-97 Jul-Aug 1993
Describes the incongruence between the service priorities of the public library community and the public. The results of a public poll on library roles (e.g., educational support, independent learning, preschool programs, community information, reference, and popular materials) and an analysis of public library data for 1992 are compared and discussed. (Contains 10 references.) (KRN)
