Abstract : This report addresses the development of programs for increasing efficiency in operation of Army libraries to meet expanding demands for services with static budgets. Army libraries are described in terms of type, resources and expenditures. Problems of current operational patterns are identified. The report recommends establishment of an Army Libraries Management Office (ALMO) which would determine goals, objectives, and priorities for Army libraries, develop uniform standards for operation and support, and develop and coordinate cooperative programs in sharing resources, shared cataloging, and centralized procurement of materials. An Army Libraries Advisory Council (ALAC) is also recommended to maintain continuous two-way communications between the ALMO and operational libraries.
