The 2000 Legislature directed the Washington State Institute for Public Policy "to study the mission, programs, and usage of the state library." This study focused on three key questions related to this direction: 1) Are there options for redefining the roles and functions of the Washington State Library (WSL)? 2) What value can the WSL add to the delivery of information to the legislature and state government agencies? 3) Is the current location of the WSL on the capitol campus essential to its effective operation? Results of interviews, focus group meetings, and a survey of state government users are incorporated into the final recommendations.
