Library Trends 21 (3) Winter 1973: Library Services to the Aging


Library Trends 21 (3) Winter 1973: Library Services to the Aging. Edited by Eleanor Phinney.

This issue of Library Trends is the direct out-growth of the work of the ALA Committee on Library Service to an Aging Population, a committee whose inception and accomplishments are referred to throughout these papers. A primary goal of those concerned for the aging should be to see that libraries are recognized as a major source for help in the search for purpose, and that access to reading and to those library materials which can be so vital to the well-being of the older person is within the reach of all the community’s elderly people.

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.
