Abstract: The public library in the past few years has been looking for innovative approaches to inner-city service. Traditional library service is no longer adequate for serving the urban people. When librarians finally realized this they began searching for new approaches and ideas. Neighborhood information centers, envisioned as expanded reference services, are now beginning or under consideration in several urban libraries. With the foregoing thoughts in mind, a conference on library -based neighborhood information centers was considered. It seemed both logical and expedient to have a forum where librarians could explore the concept and ramifications of this service before libraries jumped wholesale into its establishment. A parochial approach involving libraries alone was rejected. Only by exploring the broadest parameters of the topic could librarians begin to get perspective on their situation.
