1961: The impact of the Library services act : progress and potential

 

Allerton Park Institute Proceedings (no. 8, 1961); Edited by Donald E. Strout

In the belief that the Library Services Act is perhaps the most unique and far-reaching development to have occurred in librarianship in recent decades, the Graduate School of Library Science at the University of Illinois early in 1961 invited the Library Services Branch of the U. S. Office of Education (under whose aegis the LSA is administered) to co-sponsor an institute on the Act, to which would be invited representatives selected by the state library agencies throughout the United States and its outlying possessions. The result was the Allerton Park Institute on "The Impact of the Library Services Act Progress and Potential, " held on November 5-8, 1961, in the relaxed and informal atmosphere of Allerton Park.

The complete text of the Institute is available here as well as the individual papers. The papers included here are:
