Book Description

This book, first published in 1949, grew out of a series of talks to young librarians preparing for the entrance exam of the Library Association, and the syllabus for this exam was used to provide section and chapter headings. The different types of library call for differing methods of administration, but there are certain essential principles common to all librarianship, which are here described.
