Library Trends 16 (1) Summer 1967: Cooperative and Centralized Cataloging


Library Trends 16 (1) Summer 1967: Cooperative and Centralized Cataloging. Edited by Esther J. Piercy and Robert L. Talmadge.

This issue of Library Trends represents the bringing together of papers on a most important and growing development of an old concept - cooperative and centralized cataloging. It has isolated a library problem which is in a state of flux and which requires the attention of the whole range of librarians who make and use catalogs, as well as of users of libraries of various types. The cataloging service of processing centers demands constant evaluation, not only in terms of cost, which has been indicated as a major reason for the approach, but also in terms of improving library service. The point that the librarian may well remember is that we may not yet have reached a solution to the problem we are trying to solve, and that new methods may be awaiting our use.

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.
