Adapting American Library Science for Iranian Use.
Harvey, John F.
Two aspects of comparative library science are discussed in this paper: the adaptation of American library education and of American library standards for Iranian use. Its basic assumption is that all of the goals and most of the essential principles of American library science are as appropriate to modern Iran as to modern America. Furthermore, many practical library procedures can be borrowed from the U.S.A. A further assumption is that the foreigner is seldom familiar enough with Iran to know all of the ideas which should be incorporated or to make all of the changes necessary in adapting either library education or standards for local use. Consequently, Iranian assistance is essential in writing and revising adaptations in both fields. A final assumption is that most Iranians want their libraries improved.
