The urgent need for scientists, technologists, doctors, and administrators in developing countries has resulted in a rapid expansion in both the size and number of universities. In the daily life of the university, the library plays a major role. This guide is intended to contain sufficient technical information to provide guidance in the establishment of a library for a small university, but, at the same time, to be suitable as informative background for government and university officials and university teachers who are responsible for the future development of the library. Thirteen chapters detail the role of the library, government involvement, library organization and administration, staffing, facilities, finance, collection building and maintenance, service to users, cooperative activities, and evaluation.
