Library Trends 07 (4) Spring 1959: Current Trends in Bibliography


Library Trends 7 (4) Spring 1959: Current Trends in Bibliography. Edited by Roy B. Stokes.

The several articles in this issue of Library Trends which follow cover in varying degree all of these aspects of bibliography. They serve to establish the present state of bibliographic method as well as of bibliographical production. They also suggest the directions or developments for bibliographical activity in the immediate future.

It may be of interest to our readers to note that this issue of Library Trends comes closer than ever before to our ideal of a non-national approach to a problem of librarianship. The bibliographic science, it is evident, knows no national boundaries; bibliography with its students and scholars is found in any and every literate society. Even at that, and an indication of the difficulty of attaining the ideal, the present issue draws heavily upon English language materials, to the exclusion of other languages, for its examples and references.

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.
