Library Trends 08 (4) Spring 1960: Music Libraries and Librarianship


Library Trends 8 (4) Spring 1960: Music Libraries and Librarianship. Edited by Vincent Duckles.

What is a music librarian, or, what is music librarianship? The answer, in all of its range of meaning, is implied in the collective statements made by the contributors to this issue of Library Trends. They work as specialists in a particularly rich area of the humanities, one which has vital links with current research activity and is full of applications in education. It presents a challenging future in bibliography and offers wide scope for community service. It demands considerable technical knowledge, not only in the subject field but in library practice which can extend into the specialized directions of sound recording and duplication processes.

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.
