ACRL Goals Study

The Association of College and Research Libraries announces the appointment of a committee to assess the goals, priorities, and structures of ACRL. The committee, chaired by Dr. Le Moyne W. Anderson, director of libraries at Colorado State University, includes James Humphry III, vice-president of H. W. Wilson Company and a former president of ACRL; Mary Louise B. Cobb, head of the Cataloging Department at the College of William and Mary; Shirley A. Edsall, assistant professor in the School of Library Science at the University of Michigan; Janice Gallinger, librarian at Plymouth (N.H.) State College; Gustave A. Harrer, director of libraries at the University of Florida; Ellsworth G. Mason, director of libraries at the University of Colorado; and Harry Robinson, Jr., director of Learning Resources Services at Alabama State University.

The charge of the committee is to describe the changing environment of research and postsecondary education, the issues and problems relating to information and library service in this environment, and ACRL’s role in responding to these issues and problems. The committee is to recommend to ACRL an organizational structure for the association that would best assure this response.

The committee will meet during the ALA Annual Conference in New York City, July 7- 13, 1974, to discuss progress reports, to review the history of ACRL, to evaluate the survey design and research instruments which it will use in collecting pertinent data, and to interview past and present leaders of the association.

Further information may be obtained from the chairman, Dr. Le Moyne W. Anderson, Director of Libraries, Colorado State University, Fort Collins, CO 80521.
