Title:Publicizing Information and Reference Services
Author(s):Bruder, Mildred
Subject(s):Reference services (Libraries)
Abstract:In the first chapter of Public Library Service, A Guide to Evaluation, with Minimum Standards, the services provided by the modern library are grouped into six divisions. Under the sixth and last division heading are these provisions: "Stimulation of use and interpretation of materials through publicity, display, reading lists, story hours, book talks, book and film discussion, and other appropriate means either in the library or in community organizations. The idea of publicizing the library's policies and services, which includes all kinds of reference and informational services, is not new to anyone. All librarians attempt to tell the story of their library and its services in one way or another. I But for some reason, or perhaps a great many reasons, they )/ have failed to reach the general public. Too few people know what a library has to offer in the way of information and reference services, both to the individual and to the group.
