Library Trends 11 (4) Spring 1963: Aspects of Financial Administration of Libraries


Library Trends 11 (4) Spring 1963: Aspects of Financial Administration of Libraries. Edited by Ralph H. Parker and Paxton P. Price.

The objectives and achievements of libraries, like most undertakings which involve groups of people, are shaped largely by their financial administration. Provision and allocation of funds determine the level and emphasis of specific operations, and the effectiveness of financial controls has a profound influence upon the responsiveness of the total operation to guiding policy. The articles in this issue undertake an evaluation of recent developments in the many aspects of financial administration.

In organizing the contents of this issue, the editors have proceeded from inquiries into the sources of financial support, through consideration of the purposes for which expenditures have been made and of forces which have caused changes in patterns of expenditure, and finally to a discussion of developments of administrative procedures and techniques.

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.
