What Are the Purposes of the Standards?

 The standards have several different purposes. For public libraries and library systems, the standards are a method by which to assess and to plan for better library service at the local or system level. Library needs can be documented and strong justification can be made for improved funding from local sources. The standards can provide a consistent process which can be used over a period of time to develop improvements in public library service.

For the Alabama Public Library Service, the standards can serve as a statewide indicator of current library services and as a guide indicating future planning actions. The standards can be viable both as a consulting tool and as a basis for statewide public library planning and development.
