Los Angeles, CA., The Grantsmanship Center, 1979. 41 pp (Two of the recommendations of this report, prepared while I served as a consultant, were that this small organization did not need a full-time professional librarian and did not need to "catalog" government publications. Government materials comprised about 70% of the collection. There were two major U. S. Government Depository Libraries within walking distance, including U.C.L.A. I suggested that a part-time librarian might spend 80-90 percent of his/her time offering user-specific, information services to the staff of the Grantsmanship Center, using the resources of that organization as well as those in the many nearby special, public and academic libraries. The Grantsmanship Center followed these recommendations, thereby saving substantial money and getting much better information services for its professional trainers.)
