Library Trends 24 (2) Fall 1975: Library Cooperation. Edited by Pearce S. Grove.

In our era, the library has had a share of the responsibility for the preservation and dissemination of recorded materials. Improved transportation and communication facilities have helped to make library resources more widely available. Barriers of time and distance between the information seeker and the knowledge sought are crumbling. As libraries use new technology to meet the pressing needs for information, the obstacles will become easier to negotiate. When that occurs, library cooperation and interlibrary networking will give toe space for another step in the ascent of man.

The challenge of the papers in this issue is to bring about another step in the ascent of man through a proper democracy of the intellect. Each author addresses this direction differently; terms differ and the theorems corollary to the main proposition may seem remote. However, the connections should be made in the eye of the beholder. If we, as librarians and information specialists, can dedicate ourselves to the idea, much can be accomplished.

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.
