The Five Laws of Library Science

At least some of my future posts will be reflections on one or more of the five laws so I thought I should post them for reference.

Books are for use

Every person his or her book

Every book its reader

Save the time of the reader

A library is a growing organism

—from Five Laws of Library Science by S. R. Ranganathan, 1931

My icon

Don't expect to see much here soon. I set this up to get my icon into my profile. My topics down the road may include librarianship, information literacy, situated cognition, public policy, continuous improvement in service organizations, Quakerism, taijiquan and other things about growing up and staying healthy while growing older.

The name of the blog is the first law of library science as stated by S. R. Ranganathan in 1931.
