Ranganathan s five laws

Ranganathan’s Five Laws

  • Books are for use.

  • Every book its reader.

  • Every reader his book.

  • Save the time of the reader.

  • A library is a growing organism.

    These should underpin best practice in every area of information provision.

“Collection development. The process of planning a stock acquisition programme not simply to cater for immediate needs, but to build a coherent and reliable collection over a number of years, to meet the objectives of the service. The term demands a depth and quality of stock, and includes associated activity towards exploitation of the collection through publicity, staff training, etc.”

~ Harrod’s librarians’ glossary. 8th ed. Gower, 1995.
