Library Trends 6 (1) Summer 1957: Current Trends in Circulation Services. Edited by Wayne S. Yenawine.

The Editorial Board of Library Trends exerts significant leadership in providing a medium for subjecting contemporary library practice and theory to critical review. This issue contains a symposium on the circulation function. The authors bring into sharp focus our methods and procedures for performing the circulation function and in a very real sense evaluate recent trends in circulation services. The papers do not represent a definitive coverage of the subject, but they do treat the subject comprehensively. Some of the authors raise provocative questions about the circulation process in relation to basic professional objectives.

During the past one hundred years the concept of the circulation function has changed radically. The authors of these papers will achieve a useful purpose insofar as they assist the librarian in drawing a balance sheet on circulation services by which the gains are contrasted with the losses.

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.
