The Undergraduate Library at United States and Canadian Universities: A Bibliographic Review.
Person, Roland C.
This bibliographic review of the literature on American and Canadian university undergraduate libraries was adapted from a PhD dissertation completed at Southern Illinois University at Carbondale in 1982. Included are books, dissertations, and journal articles which treat the undergraduate library as a whole, rather than looking at only one aspect of such a library's operations. The essay is divided into four sections dealing with: (1) works which present the origin and development of the undergraduate library as a concept and provide definitions of the term; (2) literature which reflects the philosophy and rationale for establishing undergraduate libraries; (3) publications which describe currently and formerly existing undergraduate libraries at 27 institutions, arranged in chronological order by library founding date; and (4) studies which evaluate and compare undergraduate libraries. The review concludes with a brief summary of trends in the literature. (Author/ESR)
