Library Trends 26 (4) Spring 1978: Publishing in the Third World


Library Trends 26 (4) Spring 1978: Publishing in the Third World. Edited by Philip G. Altbach and Keith Smith.

This issue is devoted to a broad and somewhat diffuse topic - publishing in the Third World. The articles are united by a concern for book production and distribution in the Third World rather than by uniformity of views, common disciplinary backgrounds, or similar geographical focus. Some of the essays deal with specific Third World countries or regions, while others concern broad issues such as scholarly publishing and the internationalization of publishing. Two papers examine publishing in Canada and the USSR which are particularly germane to the Third World. The authors include librarians, practicing publishers, and academics from a variety of disciplines.

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.
