The Educational Media and Technology Yearbook has become a standard reference in many libraries and professional collections. Examined in relation to its comp- ion volumes of the past, it provides a valuable historical record of current ideas and developments in the ?eld. Part I, a€œTrends and Issues, a€ presents an array of chapters that develop some of the current themes listed above, in addition to others. Part II, a€œLibrary and Information Science, a€ concentrates upon chapters of special relevance to K-12 education, library science education, school learning resources, and various types of library and media centersa€”school, public, and academic among others. In Part III, a€œLeadership Pro?les, a€ authors provide biographical sketches of the careers of instructional technology leaders. Part IV, a€œOrganizations and Associations in North America, a€ and Part V, a€œGraduate Programs in North America, a€ are, resp- tively, directories of instructional technology-related organizations and institutions of higher learning offering degrees in related ?elds. Finally, Part VI, the a€œMedi- raphy, a€ presents an annotated listing of selected current publications related to the ?eld.

Taken individually each chapter offers practices useful for any library or media center regardless of service populations. ... Retrieved April 1, 2008, from http:// Dawkins, R.
