Library Trends 13 (4) Spring 1965: Library Furniture and Furnishings


Library Trends 13 (4) Spring 1965: Library Furniture and Furnishings. Edited by Frazer G. Poole.

This issue of Library Trends is intended to provide some of the basic information the librarian needs if he is to play his part as a member of the furnishings team. In those instances, and they are numerous, where the librarian (perhaps with the aid of his purchasing agent) is the team, such information is all the more important. It is obviously impossible in a volume of this size to provide all the data needed, but each contributor has attempted to include as much practical information as possible on the functional requirements of the library furnishings he discusses. In some instances, however, such information is not available and more than one contributor to this issue has mentioned to the editor the lack of tested data in a given field.

In keeping with the policy of Library Trends, contributors to this issue have attempted to point out those trends and new developments that may be significant and of which librarians should be aware. We hope that this issue of Library Trends will help librarians to understand important aspects of planning new buildings.

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.
