Five laws of library science - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
S. R. Ranganathan, considered by librarians all over India to be the father of library science, proposed five laws of library science. Most librarians accept them as the foundations of their philosophy:
These laws are:
1. Books are for use.
2. Every reader has his or her book.
3. Every book has its reader.
4. Save the time of the reader.
5. The library is a growing organism.
