Library Trends 27 (1) Summer 1978: Films in Public Libraries


Library Trends 27 (1) Summer 1978: Films in Public Libraries. Edited by Patricia Mackey and Linda Hoffman.

A wave of media-minded librarians is finding new ways to include films in library collections and services. Under their capable leadership, the future of film services in public libraries seems promising. Some of the leaders in this movement were invited to submit articles on the role of films in libraries to this issue of Library Trends. The issue attempts to explore a range of topics, including new film-making techniques (avant-garde), new physical formats (8mm and video), and new management techniques (data bases for bibliographic control and consumerism). Additional articles treat the role of film services to special groups, such as children, the elderly, and the hearing-impaired.

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.
