Library Trends 24 (3) Winter 1976: Community Analysis and Libraries


Library Trends 24 (3) Winter 1976: Community Analysis and Libraries. Edited by Larry Earl Bone.

In selecting the topic of "Community Analysis and Libraries" for this issue, Library Trends, in its ongoing survey of the state of the art of this field, is recognizing an aspect of librarianship long deemed important by the profession. It would be idle to suggest that this issue of Library Trends answers all questions concerning the present state of community analysis in libraries. It is more the editor's aim to have this issue raise questions, to make librarians more aware of the information they need and the reasons that they need it, to reinforce the importance of community analysis efforts, and to suggest the various approaches which librarians have at their disposal for obtaining a better knowledge of ~he communities which they serve. These are ambitious objectives, and if the authors achieve them even partially, then this issue will have served an important function.

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.
