The purpose of this act is to provide for a more orderly process whereby all types of libraries in Kansas may participate in programs of interlibrary cooperation and resource sharing. It is deemed appropriate that there be a state-level coordinating authority for recommending statewide priorities for interlibrary cooperation and resource sharing among all of the various libraries in Kansas. Cooperative planning and priority recommendation by a state-level organization, which is broadly representative of all of the libraries in the state, can assure an efficient and comprehensive statewide development of library services.
