Library Trends 5 (2) Fall 1956: Mechanization in Libraries. Edited by Arnold H. Trotier.

This issue of Library Trends is an attempt to bring together for the first time in one place information on the application of machines to the performance of library operations and techniques.

Mechanization of operations is part and parcel of scientific management. And scientific management is relatively as important in libraries as it is in business and industry generally. The need for it has always existed, but has become increasingly important in recent decades as a concomitant of the rapid growth of libraries and the greatly expanded demands for library services. It is to be hoped that the articles presented here will not only supply useful information on the subject, but that they will stimulate ideas and experiments which will provide further impetus to the trend towards mechanization of library operations and the improvement of library service in general.


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.
