The Chronicle of the Rise and Fall of Special Libraries and Information Centers for Two Decades: A Review Essay on the Directory of Special Libraries and Information Centers (Fifth Edition), the Subject Directory of Special Libraries and Information Centers (Fifth Edition) and the Predecessors Together with Explication of the Changing Special Library Universe between the 1960's and 1979.
Jackson, Eugene B.
This review essay examines the fifth editions of the Directory of Special Libraries and Information Centers and its companion, the Subject Directory of Special Libraries and Information Centers, and compares these volumes with earlier editions with respect to comprehensiveness of coverage, standards for inclusion, entry forms, consistency, and other related criteria. The background of the directories is outlined, the current context of the North American special libraries universe is described, and changes in the North American special libraries universe as reflected in the successive editions of the directory between the 1960s and 1979 are reviewed. A reference list, 11 tables presenting and comparing data on special libraries, and four figures accompany the text. (JL)
