HELPFUL AIDS to finding information on all new

methods and media being introduced in our schools is one of the services which has been extended by the Office of Education over many years.

A comprehensive radio bibliography was supplied when radio was first introduced into the classroom. In 1948, television was added to this annotated listing. Now in 1952, the books and articles have markedly increased in relation to these fields and have added greatly to the general area of this service. A wide variety of books on both radio and television as well as published studies which have contributed to the rapid advancement of radio and the electronic arts in the past few years are now included. The compilation has been made by Gertrude G. Broderick, Specialist in Radio-Television Education under the direction of Franklin Dunham, Chief of RadioTelevision Services, Instruction, Organization, and Services Branch. It is hoped that this new edition will be of great value to all those who are carrying on the work of radio and television in education and particularly to those who are contemplating such work at this time.
