Library Research in the Federal Republic of Germany.
A report of the current state of librarianship in the Federal Republic of Germany (FRG) presents a brief history as well as an overview of the prerequisites of and organizations concerned with library research, and the objectives, methods, and results of intermediary but important research projects. Although the practice of library research is new in the FRG, its subfields now include: (1) organization of research, (2) the library and society, (3) the user and the library, (4) media and their acquisition, (5) classification and use, (6) library personnel, (7) library technical processes, (8) library organization, and (9) library planning. All of these are commented upon within the report. Subjects not addressed at this time include history of the book and the library, and library automation. The primary emphasis is on those projects devoted to administrative and socially empirical topics, especially those concerned with library organization and library usage. (RAA)
