Example text

However, something also has to be said about the person who achieved this milestone in library science. Melvil Dewey was born in New York in 1851. He was a man of many talents and he had vision. He was also a great organiser. John Comaroni describes his virtues thus: Organizer: of the ALA and other professional associations, of a classification scheme (which still bears his name), and of a library school. Advocate: for professionalism in librarianship, for the education of its members, for an equal role for women.

The records still belonged to the monarch and access was often difficult if not impossible to obtain. (Bradsher, 1988) As I have sketched out before, the definition of a national library in the late seventeenth century is not unambiguous. But if we accept the traditional view that a national library is a legal deposit library, there existed very few such libraries in Europe before 1700. Still, if you broaden the definition, you will find important libraries connected to the king and his counsellors, and to universities and monasteries, in several states dating back to the fifteenth century.

They preferred to make them smaller and more easily handled institutions – in other words, there were simple practical problems. Another answer could be that the politicians of the nineteenth century were aware of the differences between the two and were of the opinion that they could not be combined in a successful way. The lessons learned from France were also strong: the national institutions had their own status and also a building of their own.
