Title:The library as a community information center; papers presented at an institute conducted by the University of Illinois Library School, September 29-October 2, 1957
Contributor(s):Phelps, Rose B.; Phillips, Janet
Subject(s):Reference services (Libraries) --Congresses
Abstract:The papers herewith presented were given at the Institute on the Library as a Community Information Center held at Allerton House, Monticello, Illinois on September 29-October 2, 1957, under the auspices of the University of Illinois Library School in cooperation with the University Extension Division. Like its predecessors this institute was planned to appeal to the needs of librarians in small and medium-sized public libraries and to this group, college librarians have been added. However, it seems obvious that meeting the informational needs of such libraries involves a large measure of interlibrary cooperation. Therefore, the subject has been approached not merely from the standpoint of the local development of a reference service but more particularly from that of the cooperative use of resources and trained personnel which should result from a new grouping of small libraries into larger service units.
