Library Trends 21 (4) Spring 1973: Systems Design and Analysis for Libraries


Library Trends 21 (4) Spring 1973: Systems Design and Analysis for Libraries. Edited by F. Wilfrid Lancaster.

This issue of Library Trends gathers contributions representing a roughly evolutionary approach to systems analysis and design in libraries, and also representing the subject from various viewpoints. Systems analysis in this issue is treated as a management tool in its own right and not merely as a necessary prerequisite to a program for library automation. The contributors are quite varied in their backgrounds and experience, and they represent a number of different points of view. They all agree, however, that a systematic approach is essential in the analysis and evaluation of existing services and the planning, design and implementation of services in the future.

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.
