Library Trends 38 (4) Spring 1990: Intellectual Access to Graphic Information. Edited by Mark E. Rorvig.

This Library Trends issue, taken as a whole, describes the great revolutionary transfer of ideas once confined to documents, to the universe of nonlinguistic knowledge; a great stripping away of the “biblio” portion of bibliography from the graphic component. Moreover, this truly is a revolution. Usually when an author uses the word revolution it is a misnomer for the real word evolution. But intellectual access to graphic records, as opposed to textual records, has returned bibliography to the same complex of concerns it had twenty-five years ago.

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.
