In a few instances, where no satisfactory blank was found, a form has been suggested.No attempt has been made to anticipate the minor problems which are bound to arise in planning and installing particular systems of records. Some of the details of the blanks and filing systems needed by different agencies necessarily vary according to their scope, policies, and circumstances, and must be adapted to fit each type of work. This discussion is limited to those general aspects of social record keeping which are fundamental and applicable to all phases of child-caring work. This must be remembered by anyone who makes use of the blanks and methods here described.For the forms and illustrations used in this study, for much excellent material which could not be included, and for many helpful suggestions, the Department is indebted to a large number of child-helping organizations in different states, which have been consulted in an attempt to learn how far record keeping, or the lack of it, has helped or hindered the welfare of children in their care, and what record forms and methods of filing them have proved most practical and useful in the days work.The Department of Child-Helping will be glad to supplement the information here given and to make suggestions to individual agencies in regard to installing new systems of records or modifying old ones.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
