Open Access Graduate Research Paper
One of the facts of life for a librarian today is the paperback book. As Walter H. Kaiser stated: . . . Paperback books are rapidly assuming a greater importance in public, school and academic libraries because of their uniqueness, quality and low cost. These inherent qualities are finally creating irresistable pressures on librarians to come to terms with this revolution in publishing •••• 1 He also discusses the "need for libraries to be in tune with new trends in publishing and to respond appropriately to the exciting 2 challenge which paperbacks have presented to the profession." So it seems that, liked or not, the librarian is having to cope with the paperback book and its special problems.
