Theories and Practices of Librarianship

P.K. Paliwal (Editor) Shyama Balakrishnan (Editor)
Synopsis Librarianship, despite being derived from a distinct field of intellectual activity, cannot be regarded merely as form of bolt on support discipline. Many would dispute this interpretation. It is more common to attempt to distinguish 'core' elements of knowledge and skill as distinctive of a particular kind of professionality and to categorise other aspects of working knowledge as non-professional. Different theories and practices of librarianship are categorically discussed in this book. Students, teachers and library professionals will find this book a dependable reference work.
