Neal-Schuman Publishers and Pratt Institute Graduate School of Information
and Library Science are developing a new CD-ROM product, "The Complete
Library Policy Toolkit." The "Toolkit" will include a CD-ROM and a 50-75
page booklet. The CD-ROM will be searchable, and users will be able to copy
text. It will contain complete text of policies. The booklet will contain
advice on writing and implementing policies.
Policies are needed from all types of libraries. I am the member of the
editorial board charged with soliciting audiovisual policies, and I hope we
can contribute really useful information for this publication. All libraries
submitting policies for consideration will receive a discount off the
purchase of the CD-ROM (the price hasn't been set yet.)
Libraries with policies selected to appear in the CD-ROM will be credited in
If you can help, please submit your policies with a letter containing contact
information for the person submitting the policies, as well as permission to
reproduce the policies in the "Toolkit." Submit to: Dr. S.M. Matta, Dean,
School of Information and Library Science, Pratt Institute, 200 Willoughby
Ave., Brooklyn, NY 11205-3897. Deadline for submission is April 15, 1996.
Thank you for your help.
