All Hail, Ranganathan!

I know this isn’t “throwback Thursday,” but allow me to indulge in a reminiscent walk down memory lane from the long past days of library school . . . I can still remember when I first heard the name of Dr. S.R. Ranganathan in Dr. Haynes course on cataloging . . . here is an infographic (courtesy of  USC Online) to help us remember (and appreciate) Ranganathan’s five laws of librarianship.  They still apply today, but as you’ll see at the bottom of the infographic, Michael Gorman (then President of the American Library Association) revised them a bit back in 1998.   Enjoy!
