Fabian, Bernhard
Based on Bernhard Fabian's "Buch, Bibliothek, und geisteswissenschaftliche Forschung (The Book, the Library, and Humanistic Research)," this study is a commentary on the relationship between library and user. Discussing the characteristics and requirements of research in the humanities, it stresses the interrelationship between humanities research and the library. The work's ultimate purpose is to call attention to major gaps and shortcomings in Germany's bibliographical institutions with a view toward amelioration. The following chapters are featured: "The Library: Essential Institution for Research in the Humanities"; "Germany: An Example of Divided Bibliographic Responsibility"; "Since No Library Can Own Every Original Record..."; "Meeting the Assault on National Literary Resources"; and "Book and Journal as Media for the Humanities." (Includes and epilogue and 153 references.) (AEF)
