The Usefulness of Comparative Librarianship in Relation to Non-Industrialized Countries.
Jackson, Miles M.
Following an exposition of the differences between comparative librarianship and international librarianship, this paper advocates comparative studies for use by developing nations. The discussion emphasizes the necessity for adequately defining the historical and environmental context of library concerns as a prelude to an explanation of two approaches to comparative studies in librarianship: comparisons between non-industrialized countries, and comparisons between industrialized and non-industrialized countries. Seven references are listed. (RAA)
