The state of Kansas and the Kansas State Library are faced with the necessity of doing more with less. In a time of decreasing budgets and increasingly fastpaced technology changes, this is indeed a challenge. This is a period of evaluating existing services, developing new services, and re‐examining missions and priorities. As a state, we are also faced with a geographically large area (81,823 square miles), a few concentrated population centers, and a large rural citizenry (2.5 million total population). Kansas has over 30 different telephone companies, ranging from Southwestern Bell to Pioneer Telephone and United Telephone. That fact alone can make coordination and statewide projects a significant challenge.
