Title: A National Public Library System for Iran: A Descriptive Analysis 1948-1978 and A Plan for Development

Abstract: The main objectives of the present study are to evaluate the current status of public libraries in Iran in order to identify the problems as well as assess the opportunities and resources that can be conducive to create and develop a plan permitting extension of public library services on a national Level

This study investigates in detail the problems concerning
all aspects of public Librarianship and, in particular, the structure, personnel, services, collection and physical facilities, as derived from a comprehensive nationwide questionnaire. The questionnaire which covers 5 Five-Year National Development Plans was extended to 162 public Libraries of which 138 libraries responded. A Long-range public library action plan has been presented, based not only on the findings of the present investigations but also on a comparative study of the planning models developed by hick and tillin, Ackoff, as well as Kemper, Akbulut, and Newell.

From the viewpoint of implementation of the proposed national public library plan, a set of general standards covering all aspects of library development has been incorporated.
