Library Trends 06 (2) Fall 1957: Research in Librarianship


Library Trends 6 (2) Fall 1957: Research in Librarianship. Edited by the Association of American Library Schools Committee on Research.

If librarianship is to develop as the times demand or opportunity offers, it must be firmly undergirded with the results of basic and continuing research. Some of it, at least, must be anticipatory. Research which answers questions already posed is valuable; that which creates and proposes is invaluable. Now, as never before, interest and activity in research in librarianship is high. While research can be carried out in the field, especially in the larger libraries, the center of such activities will undoubtedly, and properly, be in the library schools. Thus it was no accident that it was among the members of the Association of American Library Schools that the idea for this issue of Library Trends came to light, nor that Maurice Tauber was chairman of the Committee on Research of that organization coincidentally. For this Committee, under its able and energetic chairman, has produced this volume.

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.
