Evaluative study of the neighborhood information center project : a report to the Cleveland Public Library by Hardy R Franklin( Book )
3 editions published in 1974 in English and held by 19 libraries worldwide
The 1972-1974 Neighborhood Information Center (nic) Project was undertaken in Atlanta, Cleveland, Detroit, Houston, and Queens Borough to demonstrate that urban public libraries could be a vital force in daily living by providing free information and referrals to low income communities, and by adapting in non-traditional ways to meet neighborhood needs. This evaluation addressed system administration, project administration, and community, agency, and professional impact. Data was collected on user and request characteristics, user satisfaction, agency opinion, and interviews with 55 nic staff and library administrators; findings for each project showed that: (1) where adminstrative support was strong, consistent, and articulated to staff, nic had greater acceptance by and impact on staff, community, and agencies; (2) service was more successful where staff made themselves known in the neighborhood; and (3) high morale prevailed in all projects. All libraries conducted nic outreach and publicity efforts, and reported a high degree of acceptance and cooperation by social and service agencies; however, little local project evaluation was undertaken. The study concluded that the total project achieved its basic purposes and pioneered a new service showing promise for increased public library effectiveness. Questionnaires and tabulations are appended. (Kp)

Keeping Libraries Open by Hardy R Franklin( Book )
1 edition published in 1976 in English and held by 2 libraries worldwide
Major social institutions repeatedly reinforce the deprivation of the urban disadvantaged. Libraries, as the "Universities of the People," must commit themselves to the promotion of a better standard of life for all people, especially the poor. A close look at priorities is especially important if libraries are to pursue their mission in a time of financial austerity. A library should be responsive to the needs of its particular community. A possible alternative to closing branch libraries is to provide equality but not uniformity of service in all parts of a city. (Kb)
