State Library of New South Wales

RHCS were appointed in 2014 to conduct the fieldwork and research for the compilation of the Mobile & Outreach Service: NSW Public Libraries report. Methodology included literature review, surveys, site visits, reporting and drafting of guidelines.

The report provides the history and context for the delivery of mobile and outreach library services within NSW and guidelines for the delivery of these services. It is hoped that it will become a key tool for the planning, delivery and evaluation of mobile and outreach services.

There are two versions of the report. The printed copy includes information from the International Organization for Standardization ISO:16439:2014 (E). The State Library obtained a licence to print one copy for each of the 101 NSW public library services. Under the licence they cannot provide additional copies.

The State Library of NSW has published an online version of the report without the information from ISO:16439 to make this publication more broadly available.
