Library Trends 44 (4) Spring 1996: Imagination and Scholarship: Contributions of Women to American Youth Services and Literature. Edited by Karen Patricia Smith.

This represents the first issue of Library Trends devoted to the topic of the role of women in youth services and literature in librarianship. This issue seeks to explore some of the different contributions women in the library science profession have made to children’s and young adult services and literature. Nine women have contributed to the creation of this issue. The women whose lives they have researched and written about were selected because of their uniqueness, and because the legacy they created is one which shaped the course of the discipline. All of the articles here raise questions either directly or implicitly about the context in which we view women’s lives and women’s contributions, as well as the manner in which women have created a unique professional bond with one another. The preparation of this issue of Library Trends has emphasized the need for re-visioning aspects of the youth services field.
