Public Library Standards

Public Library Standards - A Review of Standards and Guidelines from the 50 States of the U.S. - April 2003

Public Library Standards A Review of Standards and Guidelines from the 50 States of the U.S. for the Colorado, Mississippi and Hawaii State Libraries by Christine Hamilton-Pennell Mosaic Knowledge Works April 2003 Introduction This report reviews the public library standards, guidelines, and rules from the 50 United States, and compares the content and process of standards-setting efforts in the 28 states that have published standards from 1998 through 2003 (including Colorado’s 1997 document). There is no agreed-upon definition of standards as opposed to guidelines, rules, or laws, so the approach taken here is to accept the terms used by each state, without attempting to analyze or synchronize them. No two states include exactly the same elements in their standards or guidelines, and each state’s approach is different, although there are some common threads in the majority of the standards-setting efforts.
