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, "Trends and Issues," presents an array of chapters that develop some of the current themes listed above, in addition to others. Part II, "Library and Information Science," concentrates upon chapters of special relevance to K-12 education, library science education, school learning resources, and various types of library and media centers-school, public, and academic among others. In Part III, "Leadership Pro?les," authors provide biographical sketches of the careers of instructional technology leaders. Part IV, "Organizations and Associations in North America," and Part V, "Graduate Programs in North America," are, resp- tively, directories of instructional technology-related organizations and institutions of higher learning offering degrees in related ?elds. Finally, Part VI, the "Medi- raphy," presents an annotated listing of selected current publications related to the ?eld. For a number of years we have worked together as editors and the sixth with Dr. Michael Orey as the senior editor. Last year as the senior editor, Orey decided to try and come up with a list of the top programs rather than just the list of all the programs. This has proven to be problematic. First of all, bias exists when we are rating a ?eld in which our program is within those to be rated.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Over the years, this essential reference volume has provided a forum to update the field, explore current issues, and provide reference information, and the current editors have maintained that function by updating educational technology in the K-12 arena, in higher education, and in business and industry....The function of any annual is to keep us up to date, and this one does the job well. It belongs in larger collections at the district level but needs to be more than just a shelf sitter. Therefore, rotate it among the teacher-librarians in your building."-Teacher Librarian
