Newspapers in the Libraryby Lois N Upham, Peter Gellatly
Pub. Date: 01/28/1988
Publisher: Taylor & Francis
Newspapers in the Library discusses the use and handling of newspapers in libraries and information centers. Although newspapers are increasingly recognized as an important, even unequaled, source of information about current history and local events, they have been largely ignored by information specialists. Individuals who work with newspapers on a daily basis--as tools in research or as an ingredient in a larger process--have contributed valuable chapters on bibliographical and physical control of newspapers, working with newspapers in a variety of settings, and international, educational, and technical aspects of using and handling newspapers.
A significant resource for scholars, authors, researchers, and information specialists, this volume will help them provide access to and protection of newspapers, and it will encourage them to continue work on this unique resource.
