Library Trends 36 (4) Spring 1988: Library Literature in the 1980s


Library Trends 36 (4) Spring 1988: Library Literature in the 1980s. Edited by Patricia F. Stenstrom and Dale S. Montanelli.

In 1979, Drexel Library Quarterly published two issues on the “Literature of Librarianship and Information Science.” At the time these two issues were prepared, George Bobinski, who edited the issues, noted that very little has been written about the professional literature of librarianship up to that time. Since then more has been written and much of what has been written will be referred to in this issue of Library Trends. Our aim in preparing this issue was not to replicate the Drexel Library Quarterly issues but rather to build on that framework and expand to new areas. This issue can be broadly divided into three areas: publishing, selection, and use.

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.
