A Family Planning Library Manual.
This manual provides a concise and comprehensive "how to" guide to starting and maintaining a family planning/population library. In addition to the step-by-step procedures necessary for acquiring and organizing book and non-book material, a classification scheme is presented for providing documents, articles, pamphlets, and books with numbers for easy filing and retrieval. This classification system is used by the library network of the Planned Parenthood Federation of America and has been adopted by other family planning libraries as a helpful method of access to holdings. Sections of the manual describe how to select, order, and process books and how to set up a card catalog; how to select and order periodicals, audiovisual and vertical file materials; actual physical aspects of the vertical file; and how to handle newspaper clippings and journal articles. Other topics of interest to librarians include advice on library policy, staff, space, equipment, and supplies. A subject index with the classification number for each subject, and a glossary of family planning terms are included. (Author/JPF)
