Library Trends 10 (4) Spring 1962: Urban University Libraries


Library Trends 10 (4) Spring 1962: Urban University Libraries. Edited by Lorena A. Garloch.

For many years the librarians in urban universities have been struggling with problems brought about by the uniqueness of their locations in urban areas. Not until the Washington Conference in 1959, however, did a group of urban university librarians formally organize as a committee of the University Section of A.C.R.L. This committee had a program at the Montreal Conference in 1960, an open meeting under the auspices of the University Section at the Cleveland meeting in 1961, and are now presenting the unique features of their problems in an issue of Library Trends.

The whole span of urban life presents problems which have not been solved. But they are being studied, and answers to some of them are unfolding. The urban university, too, is changing just as completely as is the city. And like its parent institution, the university library is undergoing change. How and to what extent, and the nature of the relationships involved, the contributors to this issue of Library Trends have tried to assess.

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.
