1966: Federal legislation for libraries
Allerton Park Institute Proceedings (no. 13, 1966); Edited by Winifred Ladley
The ten years which have elapsed since the passage of the Library Services Act of 1956 have been ten years of stupendous development in library service in the United States. In the belief that a major factor in the library development has been and will continue to be federal legislation for libraries, the Graduate School of Library Science decided to review, in its Thirteenth Annual Institute at Allerton Park, federal legislation directly or indirectly related to libraries, with a view to evaluating past benefits and formulating guidelines for the future.
