The Political Context of Statewide Library Networks: Academic Libraries and Coordinating Agencies of Higher Education
Digital Object Identifier (DOI)
The near-universal establishment of state agencies to coordinate the planning and/or financing of institutions of higher education is examined in terms of two theories of public administration, group pluralism and administrative efficiency. Implications from these two theories are drawn with respect to statewide library networks, especially those instituted by state coordinating agencies of higher education.
