California's Reference Crisis.
Childers, Thomas A.
Library Journal, v119 n7 p32-35 Apr 15 1994
Social and economic issues affecting the vitality of public libraries in California are discussed. A 1993 study by the California State Library identified diminishing reference skills and reference collections, reduced funding which impacted staffing, increased demand, technology change, and language/culture issues as contributing factors to library decline. A sidebar discusses proposals for solutions. (SLW)
