The Role of Library Schools in Planning Research Activities in the Field of Library Sciences.
Vladimirov, L. I.
To avoid duplication of effort, and to prevent a waste of the resources of research institutions and the time and energy of research personnel, coordination of scientific research in the field of library science within countries and on an international basis is necessary. An important step toward the creation of a world-wide system of control and planning of research activities is the establishment by UNESCO of the International System of Research Investigation and Documentation, ISORID. The Soviet Union is engaged in a state system of planning based on long range and short range plans, with defined, specific research targets. The topic of the scientific research must be of great importance, unique and realistic, must solve a definite scientific problem and contribute to the respective field of science. An ever-increasing importance in the research programs is being attached to the building of library networks and information systems, especially their centralization, integration, specialization, and coordination. The necessity of active research in the library schools has been stressed. The topics investigated must be in line with the main objectives and trends of research. A centralized and obligatory state system of registration of all research works is maintained. (PF)
