Stockton sent drawings, specifications and other relevant data to Volgograd via a specially constructed Internet link and Andrey Lisitsky of the Volgograd administration visited Stockton to view the bibliobus service there. The author was invited to the launch of the Volgograd bus and was featured (not always accurately) in the media. The service faces great problems because of the vast region but it is of importance in showing recognition of the value of libraries and is proving to be a popular service.

Author: Goulding, Anne; Haggis, Sarah Source: Public Library Journal; 18 (2) Summer 2003, pp.36-38 Descriptors: Public libraries; Mobile libraries; UK; Lincolnshire; Evaluation Abstract: Reports the results of a study of Lincolnshire Library Service to evaluate the efficiency of its mobile service, particularly the "one-house stops"; which were felt to be an expensive method of providing Bibliografia - 25 ottobre 2005 Le biblioteche mobili Regione Toscana - Biblioteca dei servizi bibliografici p. 3 library services to a small group of users. One-house stops were defined as those mobile library stops where the inhabitants of just one house used the service. The house could be in a village or hamlet but often were just an isolated house standing on its own in the countryside. The library service wanted to investigate whether there were any other methods of providing library services to the one-house stop clients and the advantages and disadvantages of the current system compared with the alternatives. A case study approach was taken and the area of South Lincolnshire, covered by the three mobile libraries of Deepings, Holbeach and Boston, was investigated. The aims of the project were to identify and evaluate alternative methods of providing library services to the current one-house stop users and to determine the costs of the alternative methods. The costs were calculated for: the current service; books-by-mail; village shop library; extension to the housebound service; and transporting users to the library. Title: Moving forward with confidence Author: Brooks, Judy Source: Public Library Journal; 18 (3) Autumn 2003, pp.66-67 Descriptors: Library management; Reorganization; Public libraries; Mobile libraries; UK; Staffordshire Abstract: Discusses the reasons why Staffordshire Library and Information Services reformed its Mobile Library: allocation of time to communities wasnot related to use made of the service; stops close together serving families with use of a car; stops serving one individual with use of acar; and time spent in communities where use is low prevents expansion of services where there is demand due to increased population. The Best Value Review was undertaken to gather statistical information about the use of the mobile library service and the data was used as the basis for the replanning of the service. The success of the revamped service was seen in the 2001/2002 period, where an increase in the number of items borrowed of 3.7% was achieved. 2.2 Esperienze extraeuropee Title: On the Move: Mobile Library Services in New Zealand Author: Hawke, Bernie; Jenks, Fiona Journal Name: Australasian Public Libraries and Information Services v. 18 no. 3 (September 2005) p. 93-105 Abstract: The mobile library has been a longstanding and important feature of the delivery of public library services in New Zealand.

A major part of this service is based on the Traveling Library Center (TLC), a mobile library service using a fleet of large box trucks, cargo vans and a converted Winnebago (the Techlab), an ABC Express van, and an older poptop van, based at Issaquah, Washington, to serve communities at four locations in Burien and SeaTac, on the western edge of King County, 20 miles distant. The aim of the service is to reach those who are unable get to the library and the way in which the mobile libraries are organized physically and the mode of operation are described. Title: Victorian mobile libraries: moving into the new Millennium Author: Clancy, F Source: Australasian Public Libraries and Information Services; 16 (1) Mar 2003, p.21-37 Descriptors: Public libraries; Mobile libraries; Australia; Victoria Abstract: The Victorian mobile libraries project, resulting in the significant upgrade of the mobile libraries, was based on a single idea: that the people living in remote or isolated places in Victoria, Australia, were not receiving fair and equitable access to cultural and educational materials. While this answer to this was uncomplicated in itself, implementing it was not. It involved resources, planning and cooperation at several levels between government, community and the libraries which would ultimately provide the service.
