Library Service to Children: A Guide to the History, Planning, Policy, and Research Literature is an annotated bibliography describing 428 publications that date from 1876 to 2003 about public library services to children (history, planning, policy, research, and standards) and children's librarianship (education, role, and biography). Both electronic and print literature are included, as are annual reports, bibliographies, biographies, journal articles, books, brochures, dissertations, and policy documents, among others. This revised edition features policy statements, reports, and research studies not readily identified in any one source and serves to update coverage of the print materials listed in Library Service to Children: A Guide to the Research, Planning, and Policy Literature (1992). All electronic sources are new, and the coverage of biographical literature and materials about the history of children's services and children's librarianship has been expanded.
