Posts Tagged ‘Library literature’

The Library History Round Table was alerted by a member some months ago that Google had scanned many library classics. A fellow member has followed up and made many of the titles available through his own Google “My Library” page.  My library for the Library History Buff brings together some amazing titles, e.g. The very first issue of Library Journal, Traveling Libraries by Frank Avery Hutchins (1902), A Library Primer by John Cotton Dana (1920), Simplified Library School Rules: Card Catalog, Accession, Book Numbers by Melvil Dewey (1904), and many more. Do check this out; I have not even begun to indicate adequately how many interesting titles are there.

 

Some of the titles are not full text because of lingering copyright issues. Most that I have actually clicked on are.
