Library and Information Science and Archive Administration: A Guide to Building Up a Basic Collection for Library Schools.
Parker, J. Stephen, Comp.
This bibliography identifies a useful selection of basic documents and publications to provide help and guidance to schools of library and information science and archival studies--especially those in developing countries--that wish to establish a basic collection for the use of students and teachers or to enlarge their existing collection. Because of the rapid changes which are occurring in the information field, the guide concentrates on materials published during the last 10 years although some older items have been included. The 894 entries in English, French, and Spanish are arranged in 18 broad subject fields. All current periodical titles are grouped together, irrespective of subject. An alphabetical author index is provided, as well as the names and addresses of all publishers represented in the guide. The majority of Unesco publications which fall within the scope of the guide have been included in the main sequence, as have a number of Unesco documents particularly concerned with education and training for information work. A wider selection of Unesco documents is listed in the appendix. (DMC)
