Father of Library Science Dr.S. R. Ranganathan proposed Five Laws of Library Science in 1932 detailing the principles of operating a library system.
They are -
- Books are for use
- Every reader his/her book.
- Every books it's reader
- Save the time of the reader
- Library is a growing organism.
The first four laws mainly emphasizes on the usage of books, increasing accessibility of books, how readers should be made aware of the variety of books in the library, ways in which every book purchased in the library should get accessed at least once during its shelf-life, ways of increasing reading habits and ways in which users time should be saved in the library by providing services efficiently and effectively.
