Library Trends 45 (4) Spring 1997: Children and the Digital Library


Library Trends 45 (4) Spring 1997: Children and the Digital Library. Edited by Frances F. Jacobson.

The authors represented in this issue of Library Trends take a hard look at children’s information needs in terms of the digital library. They examine the current hybrid state of affairs, innovative developments in software design and collection delivery, and implementation issues surrounding digital information tools. But technological advances are only part of the story. These articles also discuss the “socio-human” factors. What is the relationship between the user and the digital library collection? How is the collection made meaningful to the young user? What learning and teaching issues are involved?

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.
