Abstract

Providing a service which reflects community needs requires data collection. The Public Libraries and Museums Act of 1964 requires local authorities to provide a comprehensive library service to those who may wish to make use of it. The Race Relations Act of 1976 requires local authorities to promote equality of opportunity in employment and service delivery. Together, library authorities are bound to ensure that services reflect the composition of their local populations through the provision of services that meet expressed needs.
