Library Trends 45 (2) Fall 1996: Navigating Among the Disciplines: The Library and Interdisciplinary Inquiry. Edited by Carole L. Palmer.

The division of knowledge has long been a concern of library and information science. Interdisciplinarity has become a topic of wide interest, penetrating the sciences, social sciences, and the humanities. Many researchers practice it, and others study it. This issue of Library Trends is a forum for dialogue on the interdisciplinary nature of knowledge and the information work involved in inquiry that crosses disciplines. The collection is, in itself, an interdisciplinary compilation. It includes articles by a professor of humanities and two social scientists, whose earlier work in knowledge studies has been particularly opportune for our field. The authors of this volume have demonstrated that interdisciplinary inquiry is firmly within the purview of library and information science.


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.
