Library Trends 20 (3) Winter 1972: The Influence of American Librarianship Abroad


Library Trends 20 (3) Winter 1972: The Influence of American Librarianship Abroad. Edited by Cecil K. Byrd.

This issue of Library Trends is an analysis of the fairly large-scale overseas book and library assistance programs in which the American library profession has participated during the last twenty- five years. These activities have involved sizable sums of money, and the energy and expertise of literally scores of librarians and non-librarians on a global basis. Since its inception as a professional organization, the library movement in the United States has been interested in international librarianship. The American library presence abroad has increased in scope and dimension since 1945. In aggregate, the papers which follow do not reveal the full extent of American library efforts abroad. They do, however, detail the various broad avenues of approach which have been traversed in rendering assistance.

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.
