Library Trends 01 (3) Winter 1953: Current Trends in School Libraries


Library Trends 1 (3) Winter 1953: Current Trends in School Libraries. Edited by Alice Lohrer.

In planning the third issue of Library Trends an effort has been made to concentrate attention upon certain influences which are at work in the school library field. They affect the shaping, developing, and hindering of the modern school library program, the administrative phases of the school library, the types of library services that have evolved in the elementary or secondary school, the research carried on in the field, and methods of evaluating the progress of school libraries in the United States and in England. The selection of materials for children and young people and its developmental effect upon behavioral patterns of youth have, for the most part, been omitted. These important aspects of the subject deserve separate and full treatment in the future.

Library Trends (ISSN 0024-2594) is an essential tool for librarians and educators alike. Each issue thoroughly explores a current topic of interest in professional librarianship and includes practical applications, thorough analyses, and literature reviews. The journal is published quarterly for the Graduate School of Library and Information Science by The Johns Hopkins University Press.
