Library Trends 19 (3) Winter 1971: Book Storage


Library Trends 19 (3) Winter 1971: Book Storage. Edited by Mary B. Cassata.

The literature on the subject of book storage has been given widely scattered treatment; this issue of Library Trends attempts to synthesize the many viewpoints held on the subject and to deal with the alternatives for solving the problem. What storage solution is the best? Indeed, that is difficult, if it is at all possible to ascertain. There are no panaceas, and even new buildings do not always provide the hoped-for solution. Suffice it to say that it is the sophistication of the librarian and his knowledge of the various alternatives from which he may choose which will determine the route or routes a particular library will take toward solving its space problems.

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.
