Federal and State Government Publications of Professional Interest to the School Librarian: A Bibliographic Essay.
Lester, Marilyn A.
The purpose of this bibliographic essay is to make school librarians aware that inexpensive publications are available from both state and federal governments on the subject of school librarianship. Because many school librarians do not use either the "Monthly Catalog" or the "Monthly Checklist," this literature was searched for them as a way of introducing these indexes to the school librarian. This bibliography is limited to publications of interest specifically to the school librarian thus, such topics as library building design or shelving problems were omitted because of their general nature. It is not implied that government publications should be used instead of the standard reference tools or book selection aids, the bibliography is merely a way of advertising the fact that these free or inexpensive government publications do exist and can be of help.
