Von Bodungen, Sue B., Ed.
The first lecture on some experiences in library surveys and classification concludes that reclassification or acceptance of the Library of Congress system provides an opportunity for librarians to reevaluate their organizational patterns of work, to make clear decisions about policies of work and to remove deadwood from the collections. The national program for acquisitions and cataloging described in the second lecture presents the potentials of developing a central source of bibliographic information on all materials of value to scholarship published throughout the world. The lecture on myths and realities in library education: the blue stamp syndrome and the library schools proposes changes in present curricula to prepare the librarians for the realities of present library positions. The improvement of book collections for academic libraries outlines methods and responsibilities for imporvement and stresses the importance of library collections as the base from which an informed individualized service can proceed.
