Description

Excerpt from Syllabus for a Course of Study in the History of the Evolution of of the Library in Europe and America Although courses in the history of the library have been offered in other institutions and possibly along somewhat similar lines, no attempt has been made, so far as is known, to collect the materials at hand, corre late them with the social and historical development in each country, reduce this mass of data to the convenient form of a syllabus and place the result at the service of future students. The motive which has prompted the writing of this syllabus, has been largely the desire to be of assistance to the students of the library school, by helping to lighten, to some extent, the labors of note-taking, always incidental to a course for which the text-book has not yet been evolved. The outline is therefore based upon a course of lectures presented to the senior class of the Illinois state library school during the aca demic years of 1901 and 1902, and is limited to those phases of an essentially comprehensive subject to which attention has been called during the progress of the course.
