Federal Policy and Library Support
The library field as a whole, functions unaware of how federal decisions affecting the profession are made. This well-written book will greatly increase librarians' understanding of the background and development of the position of the federal government toward library support and of the entire machinery that controls the planning, budgeting, and administering of legislated programs.
Analyzed here are the federal priorities for funding in accordance with stated objectives, along with the capabilities of the existing legislated programs to meet them.
