Library Trends 12 (3) Winter 1964: Current Trends in Reference Services


Library Trends 12 (3) Winter 1964: Current Trends in Reference Services. Edited by Margaret Knox Goggin.

"Today, we shall approach the field of Library Science from the side of readers." This sentence, borrowed from S. R. Ranganathan, seems most appropriate to begin an issue of Library Trends on reference service, for it is, indeed, "from the side of readers" that reference librarians work. Current trends in reference appear to be the results of three explosions: population, publication, and learning. A11 three are here today in truly dynamic force with warning signals indicating an even greater impact in the future.

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.
