The Library in the Vocational School

by Sidney Mattis - 1943

The mere fact that a chapter on libraries is included in this comprehensive yearbook on vocational education is substantial evidence that the vocational-school library is making its influence felt. The long-held concept that the vocational school which teaches manual skills holds little room for book learning, and therefore for libraries, is slowly, but no less positively, going by the board. The advent of professional librarians in vocational schools, the recruiting of better-educated shop teachers, and the influence of the academic subjects have been responsible in part for this change in concept.
