Library Trends 8 (3) Winter 1960: Photoduplication in Libraries. Edited by James E. Skipper.

The use of photographic methods for recording and transmitting information is relatively new. Although the principles of microphotography have been known for a full century, it is only in the last twenty years that photoduplication has come to have real significance for libraries, and only in the past decade have most of the large microtext subscription projects been developed. Considering the fact that we have not completely solved the problems of the book, it is little wonder that today we are trying to extricate ourselves from the bibliographic complications inherent in this new medium.

Several of the articles in this issue cover topics which admit positive suggestions or solutions to library photographic problems. Other writers are concerned with difficulties for which there seems to be no immediate answer. It is believed that a major contribution has been made if some of the difficulties in photoduplication have been defined, since, once a problem has been accurately circumscribed, the solution is more easily attained.
