Five laws of library science
From Citizendium, the Citizens' Compendium
The five laws of library science were proposed by S. R. Ranganathan in 1931. They are:
- 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.
