Library Trends 38 (2) Fall 1989: Problem Solving in Libraries


Library Trends 38 (2) Fall 1989: Problem Solving in Libraries. Edited by Ronald R. Powell.

This issue of Library Trends has a twofold purpose. One, it has been designated as a Festschrift for Herbert Goldhor and as such marks his retirement from the University of Illinois Graduate School of Library and Information Science (though he continues to be active as a scholar) and serves as a tribute to his many contributions to the library profession. Two, as an issue of a scholarly journal, it is intended to make a significant contribution to the literature of library and information science. In developing the theme, care was taken to identify topics that reflect Herbert Goldhor’s professional and research interests.

It was concluded that an issue broadly devoted to applied and evaluative research methods as utilized for problem solving in libraries would appropriately reflect Goldhor’s interests yet would not be too repetitious of earlier works. In developing ideas for specific articles in this issue, an attempt was made to identify research methods that represent relatively new and innovative approaches to solving problems in libraries.

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.
