The problem, "Industrial Arts Libraries in Kansas High Schools," is the result of the writer's interest in a study of this kind resulting from his past teaching experience. Additional incentive was due to discussions with fellow students since entering Kansas State Teachers College, Pittsburg, relative to the kinds of instruction materials they had used for effective teaching. It is an effort to show a "picture" of the industrial arts library facilities for the school year of 1950-51. The data gathered show class room enrollments together with instruction materials, book collections for use by industrial arts classes, expenditures for materials for the general library and for industrial arts materials, the extent to which projection materials are available in the school, and a list of industrial arts library books. Criteria for the evaluation of the library were secured from various library sources. Industrial arts library information was secured from 140 completed questionnaires returned from Principals, Superintendents, or Industrial Arts teachers in the State of Kansas.
