Library Trends 46 (2) Fall 1997: The Role of Professional Associations


Library Trends 46 (2) Fall 1997: The Role of Professional Associations. Edited by Joy Thomas.

Library associations are found in great abundance and variety, from the strictly local to the international. As has been pointed out: “Associations reflect the interests of their members” (Virgo, 1991, p. 190). This issue of Library Trends will provide twelve explorations of those interests, written by a variety of practitioners who include a cyber-editor, two paraprofessionals, a library school dean, a director, a consultant, a doctoral candidate, two mid-level administrators, and several everyday public service librarians. Professional experience of contributors extends from two years to over thirty.

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.
