Remembering the Work of S. R. Ranganathan for Academic Libraries and Library Education


  • Guru Nanak Dev University, UGC Emeritus fellow, Amritsar, 143005, India


S.R. Ranganathan (1892-1972) donned many a hats at a time- a revolutionary thinker, philosopher, educationist, preacher, doer, missionary, teacher, a librarian, and above all a crusader. He worked single-mindedly and tirelessly for the development of libraries and library science in India. More than purveyor of information and knowledge, he valued libraries as instruments for all-round development of the country. At heart he was an internationalist, a humanist who saw libraries as a force in world peace and cooperation (Satija,1992).
