One Hundred Years of Sci Tech Libraries
A Brief History

Published October 1988 by Haworth Press .
Written in English.

First Sentence

In 1886, in an address to the Association of Collegiate Alumnae, Melvil Dewey said: The colleges are waking to the fact that the work of every professor and every department is necessarily based on the library; text books constantly yield their exalted places to wiser and broader methods; professor after professor sends his classes, or goes with them, to the library and teaches them to investigate for themselves, and to use books, getting beyond the method of the primary school with its parrot-like recitations from a single text.
