PAPERBACK BOOKS AND THE COLLEGE LIBRARY.
HARTZ, FREDERIC R.
THE TOTAL ACADEMIC PROGRAM OF A COLLEGE IS ENHANCED BY A LIBRARY THAT (1) PROVIDES A RICH VARIETY OF MATERIALS FOR USE BY FACULTY AND STUDENTS, (2) MAKES AVAILABLE FACILITIES, SERVICES, AND EQUIPMENT NECESSARY FOR THE SELECTION, ORGANIZATION, AND USE OF INSTRUCTIONAL MATERIALS, AND (3) OFFERS LEADERSHIP IN THE PRODUCTION AND USE OF VARIOUS INSTRUCTIONAL MATERIALS. FAR FROM PROVIDING THESE SERVICES, SIX OUT OF EVERY 10 JUNIOR COLLEGES DO NOT MEET MINIMUM STANDARDS IN THEIR BOOK COLLECTIONS, AND A NEW JUNIOR COLLEGE HAS AN EVEN GREATER PROBLEM. ONE MEANS OF HELPING TO SOLVE THIS PROBLEM IS THE EXTENSIVE USE OF PAPERBACK BOOKS, WITH "PAPERBOUND BOOKS IN PRINT" AS THE MAJOR SOURCE REFERENCE, SUPPLEMENTED BY PUBLISHERS' CATALOGS, ACADEMIC JOURNALS, NEWSPAPERS, AND LIBRARY PERIODICALS. DURABILITY CAN BE INCREASED BY ADDING PLASTIC COVERS AND PUBLISHERS' BINDINGS, ALTHOUGH IT MIGHT BE PREFERABLE TO CONSIDER SUCH BOOKS EXPENDABLE. PAPERBACKS CAN HELP BOTH ESTABLISHED AND NEW COLLEGE LIBRARIES TO MEET THEIR OBLIGATIONS TO PROVIDE A VARIETY OF REFERENCE TOOLS. THIS ARTICLE IS PUBLISHED IN "IMPROVING COLLEGE AND UNIVERSITY TEACHING," VOLUME 12, NUMBER 2, SPRING 1964. (WO)
