Library Trends 22 (4) Spring 1974: Science Materials for Children and Young People


Library Trends 22 (4) Spring 1974: Science Materials for Children and Young People. Edited by George S. Bonn.

The purpose of the issue, simply stated, is to encourage school and public libraries to build adequate science collections to meet the interests and needs of their younger, as well as their older, clientèle, and to assist librarians, teachers, and parents in selecting and evaluating science materials for children and young people of all ages. "Science" here means pure and applied physical and biological sciences including mathematics, agriculture, medicine, and technology. "Materials" means books, periodicals, pamphlets, and other publications as well as films, slides, recordings, and other audiovisuals. Children and young people are assumed to range in grade level from kindergarten through senior high school, but the materials produced ostensibly for certain grade levels may, of course, be equally useful long before or long afterward.

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.
