Development of Scientific and Technical Libraries in the U.S.S.R.
Karatygina, T. F.
The organization and development of scientific and technical libraries in the Soviet Union are natural results of the policy of the Communist Party and the Soviet Government for the intensive economic and cultural development of the country. Soon after the establishment of Soviet power, the libraries of the Supreme Economic Council were formed. Attached to various industrial and scientific institutions and under the centralized guidance of the Supreme Economic Council, they formed the basis of the present technical library network. These libraries have been and are developing as an indissoluble part of the general library system of the USSR, providing close coordination and cooperation within their own system, with other types of libraries, and with scientific and technical institutions. This well-planned development is the result of carrying out Lenin's principles of librarianship. It has resulted in the creation of a single multisection network of scientific and technical libraries, spread throughout the country and based on both technical branch and territorial principles. At present, a long term plan is being elaborated to carry technical library development through the year 2000, moving toward a single State library system. (Author/SL)
