Book Description

This book, first published in 1988, discusses the use and handling of newspapers in libraries and information centres. Although newspapers are recognized as an important 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.
