Library Trends 13 (2) Fall 1964: State and Local History in Libraries


Library Trends 13 (2) Fall 1964: State and Local History in Libraries. Edited by Clyde C. Walton.

This issue examines the significance of local history, the libraries of private historical societies, the acquisition and selection of local history materials, the use of these collections in public libraries, and the ownership of local historical materials. Local and university libraries must continue their efforts to preserve the documents and records of the present so that historians may continue to understand the pattern of history.

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.
