1968: Cooperation between Types of Libraries: The Beginnings of a State Plan for Libraries
Allerton Park Institute Proceedings (no 15, 1968); Edited by Cora E. Thomassen
The Fifteenth Allerton Park Institute sponsored by the faculty of the Graduate School of Library Science of the University of Illinois was conducted from Sunday, November 3 to Wednesday, November 6, 1968, at Allerton Park, the university-owned estate near Monticello, Illinois.
The Institute theme focused on "Cooperation Between Types of Libraries." The conference was supported by the Illinois State Library through funds made available under Title III of the Library Services and Construction Act, as amended in 1966. Illinois librarians representing various types and sizes of libraries were invited to the conference. An attempt was made by the planning committee to have the various regions within the state represented by librarians from the various kinds of libraries located within the several regions. The committee was most interested in creating an environment for interaction among these librarians in order to stimulate greater local cooperative efforts among types of libraries. A related objective was the desire that the beginnings of a state plan for library services in Illinois would emerge.
