Title: THE MISSISSIPPI LIBRARY COMMISSION: A FORCE FOR LIBRARY DEVELOPMENT
Abstract: This study was undertaken to examine the role of the Mississippi Library Commission in the development of library service in the state from its inception in 1926 to the present. It was necessary to examine the various stages of library development in the state and the functions performed by the state agency in order to determine the impact that the Commission has had on that library development. In general this impact has been felt in two ways, first, as cultural and educational needs made more extensive library service a necessity the Commission responded with the organization and leadership to affect these changes and second, the Commission has taken the advocacy role in helping the citizenry of Mississippi to become aware of the ways that improved library service can benefit all areas of life.
