From the Director

This is the first of a series of articles entitled Five Laws of Library Science.  It is a theory that S. R. Ranganathan proposed in 1931.  It details the principles of operating a library system.  Librarians from around the world accept the laws as the foundation of their philosophy.

 

Law 1

 

Books are for use.  This is the bases for library services.  The law means that books are not meant to be locked away from users.  Ranganathan had observed that books were chained to prevent removal.  This often meant that books were store or preserved and not used.  Preservation and storage are important, but books should be used and read.  We all should promote these activities.  Without access to materials they are of little value.  Dr. Ranganathan believed that focusing on access-related issues, such as the library’s location, loan policies, hours and days of operation, the quality of staffing, and mundane matters, such as furniture and temperature control is so important for books to be use.
