A Librarian Looks at Forest Education
Forestry, along with other arts and sciences, is on the one hand ever widening the scope of its activities and on the other ever narrowing its fields of specialization. A complex and challenging problem is thus presented to forest schools. As has been pointed out by the Division of Education of the Society of American Foresters, if the profession is successfully to meet the increasing demands made upon it (or the extended functions that it has assumed) the education of future foresters must be correspondingly broadened. Yet the value of the library in offering a partial solution to the problem has been often passed over by educators. The author holds that some possibilities in the use of libraries have not been realized.
